URI's Design for Print & Design for Web Certificate Programs can help you achieve the career of your dreams.

Offered exclusively through URI Feinstein Providence Campus, you‘ll find two unique Certificate Programs: Design for Print and Design for Web. With classes that meet Monday-Thursday from 5:30-8:30 pm, students are hard at work developing the skills to design and produce print media and websites with hands-on training using the Adobe Creative Suite. Using this industry standard software, participants learn the basics and more advanced techniques of layout and design, website creation and digital marketing.

Classes can be taken individually or to achieve a certificate in Print and/or Web. Participants collaborate and work one-on-one to achieve success in creating effective imaging, dynamic artwork and scalable websites using Photoshop, Illustrator, InDesign, and Dreamweaver. Both basic and advanced instruction in the software is provided, and they offer some unique classes like Photo Basics, Web Marketing, and Word Press.

Learn from the best

The instructors are professionals in their respective fields and bring real-world experience to the classroom. Certificate Programs are project-based and deadline oriented, and give students experience in a fast paced, creative environment.
