Career Potential

Among 2015-2016 Hofstra graduates who graduated from the Department of Radio, Television, Film, 100% of the respondents report that within one year of graduation they were employed or attending/planning to attend graduate school. Among those Hofstra graduates who graduated from the Department of Radio, Television, Film, and who reported salary, the median annual self-reported salary was $80,000.

Some of the full-time positions our recent graduates began after receiving their degree include:

Outcomes are based on the 86% of 2015-2016 Communication undergraduate degree recipients who responded to a survey or for whom data was gathered from LinkedIn within one year of graduation, not the total number of graduates, and may not be representative of the total graduating population. The career outcomes rate includes those employed (full-time or part-time) and not employed but attending graduate school (full-time or part-time) next semester. Salary data is self-reported voluntarily by Communication graduates and are based upon a 33% response rate. Salary figures vary from year-to-year based upon a number of factors, including market conditions as well as the number of graduates reporting salary information to us. The economy is constantly changing, and employment for past classes is not an accurate predictor of employment for future classes. In addition, a degree from Hofstra or any other school is not a guarantee of employment in any field.

All data must meet a test of data integrity. The median salary and outcomes data reported for Hofstra graduates is determined by the level at which data may be deemed reliable (University wide, school, division or department).
