This course has been developed in close consultation with Cambridge University Press and other locally-based publishers such as ProQuest and Lutterworth's to meet the needs of those who wish to work in publishing.
This course consists of four taught modules and a Major Project completed at the end of the taught part of the course. The class meets twice weekly during the semester (once weekly for part-time students) for two hours, which may be a lecture, seminar, workshop or masterclass. The modules are supported by skills-based short course options, as well as an events schedule of visiting speakers throughout the year that complements core taught classes.
This is a professional course, and our links with publishing companies are highly valued and appreciated. We are fortunate in having links with local, national and international companies, and to have produced graduates who are now working successfully within the industry. The course's network of contributors and supporters mean that the content is kept relevant and current, and it is backed by an Advisory Board which includes representatives from Cambridge University Press, Polity Press, Salt Publishing, Hart McLeod and ProQuest. In addition, the Cambridge Publishing Society (CAMPUS) gives students excellent further networking opportunities.
