Hello everyone! I am a freshman and finishing my second semester at the University of Kentucky. I have an interest in Web Design as a career but I am not sure what career path or major I should follow. The university offers computer science, computer engineering, and graphic design as majors. However, I am not sure if I need to know everything computer science and engineering related to having a career in Web Design. Would anyone with experience be able to clue me in on what major I should take and the best career path to follow? Thanks in advance!

Web design can be a rewarding career path, as it allows you to be creative and work on a wide range of projects. However, it's important to consider whether it aligns with your interests and skills. If you enjoy designing user interfaces, and working with code and are excited about creating visually appealing websites and apps, then web design may be a good fit for you. However, Web development and designing is a constantly evolving field and requires skills in various technologies and constant learning. If you're willing to put in the time and effort to keep up with these changes, then it can be a great career choice.

It would be a good idea to try to get some experience with web development and design, whether through online tutorials, a Bootcamp, or a formal class, to get a sense of whether it's something you'd enjoy and be good at before committing to a career in it.

If you have an interest in Web Design as a career, it's a good idea to consider a major in graphic design or web development. Both of these fields will provide you with the skills and knowledge necessary for a career in web design.

Graphic Design: A major in graphic design will provide you with the foundational skills in visual design, user experience, and interface design. You'll learn how to create visual content for websites, and how to design user-friendly and attractive interfaces.

Web Development: A major in web development will provide you with the technical skills necessary for building and maintaining websites. You'll learn how to code in HTML, CSS, and JavaScript, as well as how to work with databases and content management systems.

Both graphic design and web development are valuable skills to have in a career in web design, and having a strong foundation in both areas will give you a competitive edge in the job market.

In conclusion, consider your interests, skills, and strengths, and weigh the pros and cons of each major before making a decision. It's also a good idea to talk to professionals in the field, or to schedule an appointment with a career counselor to discuss your options.

Web design is the process of creating visually appealing and functional websites. It involves designing the layout, structure, and content of web pages, as well as selecting color schemes, typography, and images. A web designer considers user experience and usability when designing a website, ensuring that it is easy to navigate and meets the needs of its target audience. Web design also involves coding and programming using web development technologies such as HTML, CSS, and JavaScript. The goal of web design is to create a website that effectively communicates the desired message, promotes the brand or product, and provides a positive user experience for visitors.

For a career in Web Design, you don't necessarily need to pursue computer science or computer engineering. Graphic design would be a more directly related major, focusing on visual aspects of web design. However, a combination of graphic design and some basic knowledge of coding and web development (HTML, CSS, JavaScript) from online courses or self-learning could be a well-rounded approach to becoming a successful web designer. Remember, practical experience through internships and personal projects will also play a crucial role in building your skills and portfolio for future opportunities.
