We've been helping students find the right postgraduate course for over a decade.
Masters degrees in Publishing equip postgraduates with the skills and knowledge to produce, distribute and market or sell information through printed and electronic publications.
Courses range from taught MSc degrees, to research-based MRes and MPhil programmes. Entry requirements normally include an undergraduate degree in a relevant subject such as Media Studies. Significant professional experience may alternatively be accepted in some cases.
You will gain experience of planning, editing, production and marketing of printed and digital publications. Material covered ranges from creative writing and fiction, to non-fiction including educational literature and academic writing.
Consideration is given to the current publishing practices on local, national and international scales. Indeed, you will gain a wealth of knowledge in exploring the economics of both independent and corporate publishing houses. Issues of authorship, ethics and legislation are also a key component alongside a scrutiny of publishing culture.
Careers may include translating, proofreading and editing for numerous publishing houses or websites. Your experience would also provide you with the scope to work with businesses such as charities and corporate organisations, overseeing the production and distribution or even archiving of their materials.
