Overview

Just about every organization has a website these days, and someone has to create and manage all those sites; this is where the webmaster comes in. The webmaster and Web management major prepares individuals to develop and maintain web servers, and to function as webmasters. To learn how to develop and design web pages, you’ll take courses in computer programming languages such as Java and C++, as well as networking, database management, and operating systems. Of course, websites should be user-friendly and aesthetically-pleasing, so design classes in computer graphics, color theory, and animation are also part of the program.

Once you’ve learned how to put up a website, you’ll learn housekeeping details, like systems security, e-commerce, data transfer, user interfacing, and other relevant management skills. You’ll also learn how to troubleshoot and to fix hardware and software issues.

With a degree in Web management, you can work for all kinds of organizations, from small businesses, to software start-ups, to government agencies.
