The Master of Publishing is accredited by the Australian Publishers Association (APA), and will equip you with the skills required for book, magazine, digital and online publishing. This course offers both professional training with direct vocational applications and a scholarly approach to the history of publishing, its cultural significance and changing directions.
This course is aimed at students who wish to take up, or already occupy, career positions in publishing or in other organisations where an in-depth understanding of the publishing world would enhance their professional prospects.
You will have the opportunity to study aspects of book, magazine and online editing; manuscript preparation; print and website production; publication design; and marketing. This range of study provides you with both hands-on production skills and an in-depth understanding of how our culture consumes print and online content. If you have achieved a credit or higher in two core units, you can complete an internship, as well as an extracurricular anthology project. This means our graduates are equipped with real-world experience, professional network connections and the opportunity to develop a portfolio.
Our course is taught by current industry professionals with extensive experience in book, magazine and online publishing.
