Web Design

English majors have great potential as members of businesses, and when it’s time to take a technology general education course, they should consider taking web design classes and computer programming classes. Here are three different kinds of jobs that use those skills.

Web Content Developer (Webpage Design)

Any job that asks for web content design will usually expect the applicant to be able to work with website formatting — html, xhtml, javascript, flashplayer, dreamweaver, ect. An English major with this skill can expand his/her genre horizons in web writing as they learn how much detail to give in certain places, how word-choice is different with tighter, more straight-forward phrases, and even the font and color choice. Research and data collection/interpretation is also important for this kind of position.
