Pellissippi State launches Design for Web and Print

posted in: Academics, Degree Programs, Students | 0

Students at Pellissippi State Community College will have the opportunity to study a new degree concentration this fall.

Design for Web and Print, a concentration in the Media Technologies program, combines graphic design and web design in one, cross-disciplinary concentration that prepares students for careers in graphic or web design, marketing, promotions or e-commerce.

“This new concentration allows students to have their feet in different areas,” said Martha Merrill, program coordinator of Web Technology at Pellissippi State. Merrill will teach the Web Design I course offered this fall. “It’s allowing students to learn things like web design and coding, combined with the aesthetic finesse of graphic design.”

“In today’s workforce, you can’t compartmentalize what you know,” said Stewart Taylor, an associate professor in Media Technologies. Taylor will teach two courses this fall as part of the new concentration: Design Basics for Web & Print and Photoshop for Web & Print.

In four semesters, students in the program will be able to gain proficiency in programs like Adobe Illustrator, Photoshop and InDesign, will learn to code using JavaScript, jQuery, CSS and HTML5 and will study essential elements of design for web and print publications.

Additional information about the concentration is available in the College Catalog, catalog.pstcc.edu. Students interested in the Design for Web and Print concentration can contact Pellissippi State’s Advising office at 865-694-6556.
