Combining journalism and communication technology, graduates understand how to merge text, images and video to create engaging content to publish across any number of digital platforms. Whether working in news, marketing, social media, public relations, multi-media development, broadcasting or website communication, graduates with a bachelor’s in multiplatform journalism are also trained in media law and ethics. Plus, as a science and technology focused university, Florida Tech graduates have focused experience in creating and publishing for the sciences.

Strategic Communication

Graduates with a strategic communication degree from Florida Tech enter the workforce with an array of skills that prepare them for a career in a variety of communication disciplines. Strategic communication expertise opens the door to jobs in public relations, marketing, publishing, media, organizational communication, intercultural communication and more. Much like a public relations degree, students create and present communications to diverse media outlets. But a strategic communication degree also provides mastery of research, analysis, critical thinking and technology, developing graduates who are able to offer strategic counsel in a leadership capacity for any organization.
