Real World Experience

From the moment students enroll in our programs, they are provided with real world experiences and career guidance to ensure that their course of study supports their professional goals.

Internship Program

As the publishing industry changes, many hiring managers place great importance on the skills that students learn not only in the classroom, but also on the job. Our robust internship program allows students to gain hands on exposure to the industry as part of their studies. Students may enroll in the internship course as an elective. Paid internships are also available.
