Center for Publishing

Mission Statement

The Center for Publishing prepares students for careers in book publishing and digital/magazine media. With a faculty of industry leaders, global opportunities, and a strong internship program, we offer an innovative, highly relevant curriculum.

Center of Publishing

Studying in the publishing capital of the US, you'll be taught by professors who are top editors; publishers; and directors of digital, marketing, sales and other functions that are critical to the industry. Learning continues outside the classroom through visits to major media companies.

Career Building from Day One

We're here to help you to advance along your publishing pathway through career guidance, job opportunities, and professional development. Internships at magazine and book publishers, and digital agencies are available beginning in your first semester, helping you to gain invaluable experience.

Networking Advantage

Through conversations with your professors and guest speakers, as well as through alumni of our program, you’ll have the chance to connect with experts who open industry doors. Field trips, volunteer opportunities, and conferences and events all serve to extend your network.

Real World Experience

The Center for Publishing emphasizes the importance of real world experience with opportunities to learn, network, and engage with the global publishing landscape in and outside of the classroom.

Global Opportunities

The opportunity to volunteer at global conferences and book fairs is a hallmark of our graduate degree. Supported by program grants, selected students attend events in Beijing, Bologna, Frankfurt, and London, expanding their global publishing knowledge.

Industry Visits & Internships

Taking full advantage of our location in the publishing capital of the world, we take students on visits to book and magazine/digital media companies each semester. Students gain an inside look at the latest business practices.

Building a Publishing Community

Publishing is an industry of close relationships.  We foster our own tight-knit community of students and alumni through the Publishing Student Association and alumni outreach.

Programs

Our immersive publishing programs prepare students for positions in books and magazine publishing, and digital media. With two professional pathways, students may choose between a six-week intensive or a 42-credit graduate program that  offers flexible scheduling.

Message from the Director
Andrea Chambers
BS, MS, academic director and clinical assistant professor, MS in Publishing and SPI

With a background in both book publishing and magazine media, I greatly value the importance of content across platform and formats, and encourage our students to be nimble and versatile, thinking broadly and strategically.  It’s so important to understand not only publishing fundamentals, but the latest digital content creation, marketing, and distribution strategies employed by multi-faceted media companies.  Our students learn the many layers of book, magazine/digital media from a faculty of industry leaders. Class assignments are comprised of real-world tasks similar to what students will encounter on the job. The program also offers field visits that provide students with inside looks at publishing and a wealth of networking opportunities. Internships, too, provide increased exposure to the industry. To round out the student experience, we offer volunteer opportunities at global conferences and events. I invite you to join us on this exciting journey into the world of publishing.
