Any Web Development Masters Degrees in USA?

I am currently doing an undergraduate degree in Web Design in the UK and I am wondering if anyone knows of any American universities that have a web development/design related masters degree. There seems to be a few in the UK but not so much in the America. I probably wouldn’t want to do a masters degree in something as broad as Computer Science though.


To be honest (and I don’t mean to take anything away from your existing qualification you’re going after) but in my experience, most employers look (especially in the web design sector) for something in computer science over web design (as paradoxical as it may appear). Web design in education has become a very sticky subject as most places teaching it (the UK and USA alike) tend to teach outdated practices, seriously flawed education styles and by the time new information gets to the classroom the techniques or the fundamental aspects of it have changed. If I were in your position I would go for the more broad computer science masters degree (which at least has guaranteed recognition) and use that along with your under-graduate training to get into a position off the back of it. :slight_smile:

With the help of Internet, you can find the best online Master’s degree program in Web Development offered by USA based online colleges and universities. Candidates with Master’s degree in web development are increasingly recruited today by the employers. <snip/> you may get a list of various USA based online colleges and universities that can provide Master’s degree in Web Development.

Horse poop, NO degree in web design has ever been standardised or accepted upon by the web design community at large, and education is notoriously poor at maintaining modern standards. Any recruiter who takes you on based on a degree forged by most Universities or Colleges in the USA (or anywhere else for that matter) rather than a portfolio or a more reliable education format (like a CS degree) isn’t doing their job (at finding a good candidate right. :slight_smile:

Damn right. In the UK a Web Design graduate is often viewed as someone who couldn’t handle CS (not that it’s as hard any more!).

If I were you, I’d either build up an incredible portfolio that shows off your work, or look towards a Masters in Computer Science.
