University Of Phoenix Announces New Degree Concentration In Web Administration

PHOENIX, Oct. 29, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- University of Phoenix® today announced a new associate degree concentration in Web Administration. This new degree incorporates the industry-standard CIW Web Foundations Associate curriculum, provided through a new agreement with Certification Partners. This curriculum includes three courses — Internet Business Associate, Site Development Associate and Network Technology Associate — and provides the knowledge and skills that students need in order to earn the related professional CIW certifications, as well as perform the technology-based job tasks that employers demand. 


As the Internet continues to grow and thrive as a critical source for information and commerce, the need for skilled professionals who can develop and manage websites increases. The new Web Administration concentration fulfills this need by providing University of Phoenix students the skills to handle these jobs using the industry-leading CIW Web Foundations Associate curriculum, which focuses on how businesses use Internet and Web technologies.

" University of Phoenix is dedicated to providing our students with employable education that is relevant to current industry needs," said Dr. Bill Pepicello, president of University of Phoenix. "This new relationship with Certification Partners will provide our students with the skills and education they need to be effective Web administrators who can positively impact the success of the businesses for which they work."

University of Phoenix has worked with Certification Partners, the leading provider of vendor-neutral Web technology skills certification, since mid-2011 to develop the Web Administration associate program. The degree will be administered through University of Phoenix's College of Information Systems and Technology, and enrollment for the program is now open to the public.

"This is a great opportunity for working professionals and students to begin a highly relevant career in Web development," said Certification Partners President and Chief Certification Architect James Stanger, Ph.D. " University of Phoenix's Web Administration program will provide the foundational knowledge for professionals to grow along with the Internet. By using the CIW Web Foundations Associate curriculum, this program will help its students evolve from Web consumers into Web producers."
