Arts and Psychology: From Passion to Profession with Josianne

Segment #7 from Florida Tech


Let’s catch up with Josianne from Fairport, New York, who’s gonna introduce us to life as a student in Florida Tech’s College of Psychology and Liberal Arts. If you’re interested in human creativity, human behavior, and the human condition, you’re gonna want to pay close attention to this one. Josianne, we can’t wait to hear from you. Please take it away.

– Well, Alex, I actually started my college experience at a different school with a different major, and neither turned out right for me. I needed adventure, so I visited Florida Tech while vacationing in the area. Within a week of my amazing campus visit, I committed to the university and both the Panther Volleyball and Track teams. I’ve always had a creative side and thought it might be time to turn my photography hobby into a career. So, I decided to major in multi-platform journalism. This program covers every area of media production, including video, writing, photography, audio, and graphic design. Perfect. Once I decided my major, my academic advisor introduced me to several opportunities to gain an experience on campus. As a result, I became the editor-in-chief of the Crimson, Florida Tech’s student-run newspaper. I’ve also photographed and created content for Florida Tech Athletics, produced podcasts for Panther Radio, and developed my own photography business. I see all my friends and classmates in the College of Psychology and Liberal Arts enjoying experiences like these. Whether they’re majoring in communications, humanities, pre-law psychology, forensic psychology, or behavior analysis, they’re all gaining real-world experiences on and off campus. Music, media, research, community service, athletics, we do it all. My experience as both an athlete and a multi-platform journalism major at Florida Tech has really shown me what direction I wanna take in life. After graduation, I plan to pursue a career in sports media. I’m beyond grateful that Florida Tech enabled me to combine my two passions in life, sports and creativity. I bet you can relate, Alex.

– I can totally relate, Josianne. Turning my passions into a profession is actually how the College Tour came to be. I love helping students like you find their fit at amazing universities like Florida Tech. Josianne, thank you so much for joining us, and congratulations on the editor-in-chief gig. You’re gonna be great.
