Course content

The global publishing industry is changing dramatically - and so are the skills needed by the next generation of publishers. Located in the heart of the commercial centre of this global industry, the City MA in International Publishing bridges the gap between knowledge and practice. The programme provides you with a systematic understanding of the current international publishing industry, and a critical awareness of insights drawn from both scholarly research and professional practice. Through both analytical and applied modules, you will gain a comprehensive understanding of techniques applicable to your own research or advanced professional practice, and a critical awareness of the nature of how established techniques of research and enquiry are used to create and interpret knowledge relating to publishing. The conceptual and applied understanding that you gain will enable you to critically evaluate both current industry practice in local and global markets and research and advanced scholarship in the discipline; to evaluate methodologies and develop critiques of them; as well as, where appropriate, to propose new hypotheses.
