Of course you’ll still study the basics—like communication theory, investigation and reporting skills—but you’ll also focus on how emerging technologies are making citizens more informed than ever before. You’ll see how YouTube, Facebook and Twitter continue to alter accepted notions of news coverage. And you’ll learn new and creative ways to deliver the latest scoop.
Plus, you’ll have plenty of options to practice your lessons in our on-campus, state-of-the-art newsrooms. Working with the award-winning iPulse newspaper and website, Beyond the Brief television news or Knight Radio station will add an extra element of education to our already diverse degree program.
You can enhance you professional development with an internship, too. Our students have interned locally with the Sun Sentinel, WPTV Channel 5 (NBC), Boca Magazine and Gulfstream Media Group.
At Lynn, your course schedule combines core curriculum and degree-specific classes right from the start—meaning you can start studying the subjects that interest you as early as your first year.
And as a multimedia journalism major, your classes will vary from writing to designing. Expect to take classes such as Photojournalism, Film and Video Editing and Digital Layout and Design.
Your new degree will give you access to impressive career opportunities—many more than we could ever hope to list. Still, we’ve created this short sampling of careers you might pursue starting with this degree:
- On-camera reporter / on-air personality
- Marketing manager
- Graphic designer

We’re happy to help you set and reach your career goals. At Lynn, all students enjoy free career planning services.
