The Art Institute of Fort Lauderdale has renamed its Interactive Media Design program to Web Design & Interactive Media. The school announced that it made the change because it wanted to highlight its web design curriculum since web design careers are in high demand.
The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics published a report saying IT-related jobs are expected to be among the fastest growing jobs till 2014.
"We are experiencing a boom in web design careers and for web developers," said Suzanne Morrison-Williams, program chair of Web Design & Interactive Media, in a released statement. "Graduates are getting hired the same day they walk across the commencement stage. ... They have a choice of where they go in terms of employment and salary options."
