Web Communication Design

Why Major in Web Communication Design?

There's a lot more to a website than just a neat idea.

At the core of every good website is a solid message. With a Web Communication Design degree from Hastings College, you’ll study all the pieces of what makes a good website and discover how to identify and put them together in new, meaningful ways. In line with that philosophy, our faculty challenge you to develop strong writing, photography, design and communication skills.

Messaging, communication theory, advertising, marketing, multimedia, social media, writing, art and computer science — these are all the core elements in a web designer’s toolbox, and they’re all waiting for you at Hastings. Throw in a bit of business sense and you’ll be ready to jump into new opportunities after graduation or launch your own firm.

Graduates of the Hastings College Web Communication Design program have gone on to major web firms like Oswego Creative and Infuze Creative, as well as designing for companies like Walmart, Furniture Row, US Bank and Bosselman Energy. Others are building on their foundation in graduate programs at Kent State University and elsewhere, creating a new standard for online communications.
