The Front-End Developer associate degree program prepares students for employment as an entry level software developer typically advertised/recruited as Front-End Engineer, JavaScript Developer, Full-Stack Web Developer, and others. Students learn fundamental web development technologies such as HTML, CSS, and JavaScript. In contrast to our Web Developer associate degree program the front-end developer curriculum focusses on JavaScript and its vast ecosystem rather than Java, PHP, and/or C#. Students in this program learn to build Single Page Applications (SPAs) with JavaScript and popular frameworks and libraries such as Angular, React, and others. Various Cloud and ‘Serverless’ offerings are also introduced to provide students with valuable experience in modern JavaScript software development.
