FAQs: Web and Mobile Application Development


What will I learn in the web and mobile app development degree program?

DeVry’s Bachelor’s Degree with a Specialization in Web and Mobile Application Development will help you develop the necessary skills to create web and mobile apps across various industries.


What's the difference between an app developer and a web developer?

App developers create software applications that run directly on computers, mobile phones and other electronic devices, independent of a web browser, using programming languages like Java. Web developers create interactive content for websites that is accessed through a browser, rather than directly on a device, and use web-based technologies like HTML, CSS, and scripting languages. Both app developers and web developers may specialize in particular aspects of apps or websites such as visual appearance, user interaction or database connectivity.


Are exam expenses part of my tuition cost for this degree program?

Yes, this and many of our other degree programs are eligible for a reimbursement of up to $300 for the cost of one exam attempt across a wide range of certifications.
