About

Graduates of the Multiplatform Journalism program at the Florida Institute of Technology enter the workforce with the skills needed to prepare story content for the diverse range of media available today.

Overview

What Is A Multiplatform Journalism Degree?

Combining journalism and communications technology, graduates of the Multiplatform Journalism program at the Florida Institute of Technology 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, multimedia development, broadcasting, or website communications, 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 gain focused experience in creating and publishing for the sciences.

Career Outlook

The Occupational Outlook Handbook, published by the United States Department of Labor’s Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS), provides detailed information about hundreds of careers, including median annual pay, working conditions and job outlook, among other things.

According to the Bureau, employment in communication careers is expected to grow 6% through 2024, as organizations continue to emphasize the production of media content and customer relations to enhance their reputation and visibility. Writers and content developers also find work in public relations, blogging and reputation management initiatives. A multimedia journalist works to produce video for broadcast and online platforms, and creates compelling stories for branding, fundraising, and documentaries.

The Occupational Outlook Handbook reports that communications jobs in the professional, scientific, and technical service industries have the highest wages.
