“I knew nothing about web development and I had no idea where to begin. My teacher was able to break down a concept that was completely foreign to me so that I could understand it easily. He also really helped me a ton with my final project, which was building a prototype for invibed.com. Best of all, the part-time program was flexible enough to fit in with my busy work schedule."
These front-end development veterans bring in-depth experience from the field to the classroom each day, providing invaluable insights into succeeding on the job.
GA instructors are committed to providing personalized feedback and support to help you gain confidence with key concepts and tools.
“Every student brings a lot of knowledge and skills to the classroom. One of my goals is to help you recognize what you already know and connect it to what we’re trying to do. One of the most important skills I teach is how to troubleshoot and find answers to your questions so you can continue to learn and grow as a developer long after your time in my classroom.”

Frequently Asked Questions
Why are front-end web development skills relevant today?
Literacy in web development basics is in demand across a range of industries, including design, marketing, and product development.

This is a beginner-friendly program with no prerequisites, although some students may have coded previously. First-time programmers will have access to pre-course preparatory lessons and additional resources to boost their confidence with key concepts.
Our Admissions team can discuss your background and learning goals to advise if this course is a good fit for you.
Can I work full-time while enrolled in this course?
Yes! All of our part-time courses are designed for busy professionals with full-time work commitments. Depending on your location, classes meet twice per week in the evenings, or all day on Saturday.

Which format should I take this course in — on campus or online?
It’s up to you! Our Remote courses offer a learning experience that mirrors GA’s on-campus offerings but allow you to learn from the comfort of home. If you don’t live near a GA campus, have a busy travel schedule, or just want to save yourself the commute, a Remote course could be a good option for you, if available in your market. You’ll still get access to the expert instruction, learning resources, and support network that GA is known for.
If you prefer to learn alongside your peers and can make it to campus, our in-person courses allow you to take advantage of our beautiful classrooms and workspaces.
