If you want to develop dynamic, data-driven websites and manage the back-end, the associate degree in web development is a great place to start. On campus or online, you’ll learn the basics of how to develop, design, test, and deliver secure and accessible web apps, and you’ll be ready for entry-level positions in a profession that just keeps growing. If you decide you want to continue your education with a bachelor of science in computer information systems, all your coursework will apply toward the application development specialization.
