Course summary

Overview

Publishing (distance learning) is a flexible learning programme. It will equip you with the skills and knowledge needed for successful entry into publishing, while studying from home.

This course closely follows our established campus-based MA publishing degrees. We have designed it to address publishing employers' needs. But more importantly, so that you can study while in employment in any field.

The publishing industry needs individuals who are able to assess, evaluate and synthesize data. So you will develop skills and knowledge in:

  • marketing
  • production
  • editorial functions
  • data analysis
  • writing practices.

As part of a study group of other students, you will be supported by a tutor. As well as a Subject Coordinator who will give you further academic guidance.

All modules are delivered online using interactive features of the virtual learning environment (VLE), Moodle.

Career prospects

This course is targeted at individuals who either want to start a career in publishing or who are already working and want to enhance their career with an advanced degree.

If you are a recent graduate who wants to enter publishing but are unable to continue with full time study then this programme enables you to develop appropriate knowledge of the industry. If you are already working and want to progress your career or change career, then the topics we cover in this programme provide the basis for this change.
