Course summary

Welcome to the award-winning MA Publishing at the University of Central Lancashire. We have been teaching Publishing for over a decade. Our curriculum has been designed with student, alumni and industry consultation. This includes professionals from Penguin Random House, Harper Collins, Macmillan and Hachette.

The MA is affiliated with UCLan Publishing, an award-winning independent Publishing house which operates out of the university. Students will have full access to the resources throughout their studies to gain practical skills and the industry experience vital for a successful career in Publishing.

UCLan Publishing is recognised on both sides of the fence: in academia and in industry. We have won the prestigious Times Higher Award for Innovation in the Arts (2018) and in industry we won the Nick Robinson Newcomer Award at the Independent Publishing Awards (2019).

Students from the MA Publishing have gone on to have successful careers in industry. We have graduates working in editorial, marketing, design, sales and rights. We have also had students go on to work in related professions such as Head of Communications and PR.

Why study with us

  • We teach publishing through the lens of Children’s and YA. This means you will get the breadth of learning and skills needed to transfer across genres but you will be able to directly implement your learning into supporting the UCLan Publishing business and will therefore gain a true understanding of brand.
  • You will learn from UCLan Publishing’s entrepreneurial and innovative approach to business and publishing for which it is recognised and award-winning.
  • There will be opportunity to learn from, and work with, the content from the business and this is something that is unique and only accessible to students at the University. Where possible, we work interdisciplinary and this has included working with Photography, Illustration, Acting and Creative Writing.
