The Senior Project requires two websites; the student will find a client to develop a dynamic website for and also will develop a website to showcase all school and real-world related projects. Successful completion of the course is based on completed milestones, website production, website complexity, approval of the client (project 1), and approval of Visual Communications faculty (project 2.)
The Advanced Website Design & Development course covers current client-side scripting languages used to make a website dynamic and interactive. This class will teach students how to take their knowledge of websites and implement a client-side scripting language to interact with management systems. Client-side languages also complements current markup languages to further the level of dynamic interaction between the client and server.

The Management System Fundamentals course introduces the student to current systems of managing data. Students will develop management systems used in conjunction with a server-side scripting language to allow students to develop dynamically driven web applications, as they are an integral part of deploying web content for mid-to large-sized corporations.
The Server-side Languages course covers server-side scripting language used to help interact with web content. This class will teach students how to take their knowledge of static-based web content and implement a server-side scripting language to develop a more robust website. Server-side languages complements current markup languages to further the level of interaction between client and server.
The Website Structures course adds to previous classes by implementing advanced techniques to create website structures that are easily navigated and future-ready using current markup languages.
