An individual, with or without a college degree, with the goal to acquire or improve computer desktop publishing application skills, will accomplish that goal in this certificate. Emphasis is placed upon the acquisition of results-oriented career business and industry skills.
The desktop publishing certificate is intended for those seeking entry-level positions, as well as for those currently employed, who desire to enhance their job skills. This certificate provides current or prospective employers with tangible evidence of desktop publishing competency, on the part of the certificate completer.
Application courses for the certificate will encourage students to develop a “cross-platform” mastery, which is made possible by offering most on-campus courses in a dual-platform Macintosh and Windows computing environment.
