Course content

Humber’s Creative Book Publishing graduate certificate program combines creativity and entrepreneurship with the only opportunities in Canada to specialize in literary agenting/rights management and publishing technology. Taught by working professionals, and visited by industry experts and published authors, students of this program regularly make valuable contacts.

After two months of foundational publishing courses including business models, acquisitions, contracts, copyright, technology, creativity, operations and content management, you will choose three of four specializations: editorial, marketing, literary agenting/rights management or advanced technology.

In the final month, students are organized into groups representing publishing enterprises. They collaborate to create model publishing companies from the ground up including business plans, publishing lists, jackets and covers, websites, and marketing campaigns. This intense capstone assignment provides an unprecedented knowledge base which prepares graduates for a successful career in publishing.
