Why study this degree at UCL?
The Publishing MA aims to cover the entire spread of publishing disciplines, from fiction and trade to professional, academic, scholarly and educational.
Teaching staff possess a wide range of book trade experience and networks of contacts across all fields in the UK and internationally. Their research has helped shape how publishers have developed practices, and made an impact on the discipline as a field of academic study.
In addition, leading publishers, literary agents, authors, legal experts, booksellers and electronic authorities visit to give lectures and presentations. Students benefit from masterclasses from industry leaders on current and controversial issues and field visits to retailers, publishers and libraries.
At the end of the Publishing MA at the University College London (UCL) you will be a professional publisher ready to launch your career with a qualification from a university that the industry recognises and values.
