The world leading MA Publishing course at London College of Communication allows you to hit the ground running. It combines theoretical and practice-based approaches to teaching and learning so you can prepare for future employment, obtaining a strategic, practical and integrated command of publishing within digital and multi-platform publishing and international contexts.
The course offers the choice of two teaching and learning specialisms: book multi-platform publishing or magazine multi-platform publishing. It is aimed at people who are aiming to advance their careers to management level within the global publishing industry. Graduates who have completed our postgraduate publishing courses since 1969 can be found throughout the world in senior positions within publishing and communications practice.
The course design and curriculum takes an integrated multiplatform stance. Digital applications are covered throughout your time at the College, across units within either chosen learning specialism. The course is led by specialist staff and enables you to take the lead in the management and production of creative content for a range of audiences via different platforms (web, digital, mobile tablets and devices and print).
Throughout the course there is an emphasis on group work, practical publishing projects and engagement with industry through leading guest speakers, visits and placements.
Our unique resources will allow you to realise the production and publishing of actual books, magazines, websites or conference events when applying publishing and project management methods in Phase two.
You will also develop the necessary research techniques to undertake a major research study or dissertation and you will complete the study of two electives. New perspectives on publishing are gained from visiting another country for one week as part of the international residential summer school for MA students.
