MS in Publishing

The MS in Publishing Program offers you the unique opportunity to learn the histories, concepts, and practices of publishing, from writing and editing to design, production, promotion, and distribution. The program integrates literary and cultural studies with practical skills that reflect the dynamic technological changes within the publishing industry. UHV supports an online community where students participate in distance learning through lectures, critiques, meetings and interactive projects.

UHV is the home of American Book Review, Cuneiform Press, Centro Victoria, Chax Press, The Society for Critical Exchange, and symplokÄ“. Working under the guidance of our nationally recognized faculty, you will explore acquisitions, book and magazine design, professional editing, publicity, marketing, and become familiar with cutting-edge software such as InDesign, Illustrator, and FontLab.

Field trips, readings, guest lectures, and internships are at the core of this dynamic program. Courses are offered in English, History, Marketing, Communication, Curriculum & Instruction, and Management. Alumni from our program go on to become editors, published writers, directors of their own publishing houses, or enter the industry with a practical, intellectual foundation in the history of publishing as well as the skills necessary to compete in the field today.
