About

The Humanities - Literature program at the Florida Institute of Technology enables students to think in complex ways by learning to make connections, weigh evidence, raise questions, and analyze details.

Overview

Diverse Concentrations

The humanities include history, ancient and modern languages, literature, human geography, anthropology, law, politics, religion, music, and art. Humanities–Literature teaches and develops techniques of critical thinking and rational analysis through the great literatures of the world, with broad application in all fields of society.

A Doorway To Lifelong Exploration And Achievement

In the Humanities - Literature program at the Florida Institute of Technology, students scrutinize (and debate) a wide variety of texts; learn about literary movements and periods; and study the critical approaches that have shaped the way we view literature, world cultures, and our world. Humanities–Literature is an essential basis for academic writing, the publishing world, journalism, advertising, the media, and even the worlds of management and law—wherever strong communication and written English skills are top priorities.

Career Options

Students often go on to find work in a wide variety of well-paying professions:

  • teaching and academia
  • the publishing industry, including writing and editing careers
  • the law
  • marketing
  • social media
  • broadcast media
  • journalism

Employers in many different fields are looking for people who are creative, innovative, and good communicators. Case in point: in recent years, the publishing industry has seen much disruption, thanks in part to the digital revolution. While traditional print publishing companies (including newspapers and magazines) are becoming smaller or struggling to survive, those who have adapted to the world of digital publishing are continuing to thrive—and employers are in desperate need of graduates with the skills to help them keep evolving.

Digital publishing overlaps strongly with journalism, whether the print media (magazines, newspapers, or news websites) or the broadcast media (television, radio, podcasts and videos, etc.)—as well as academia, with its worldwide dependence on scholarly electronic journals (e.g., scientific periodicals). Graduates with Humanities–Literature degrees who pursue a career in publishing may be involved in a variety of areas, including writing, production, editorial, administration, marketing, and public relations.
