MA - Master of Arts
Exeter has a strong track record in supporting its graduates into work. In addition, the HESA destination of leaver’s data from master’s degrees in publishing shows an exceptionally high number of graduates securing full-time employment following this qualification. This is reflective of the MA Publishing as a qualification that the industry recognizes and values.
This programme prepares graduates to build careers with major publishing houses and small presses. It is designed to enable students to secure entry level roles, but also to progress faster through the industry and become innovators and leaders. Graduates will be equipped to take on roles in the industry from editorial to marketing to sales to production, and to work across print and digital, literary and popular, trade and academic, book and journal, fiction and non-fiction, children and adult publishing. Throughout the programme, they will be offered opportunities to build professional networks with industry and our alumni community.
The programme explores entrepreneurial skills in the context of the publishing industry and therefore equips graduates with the skills to set up their own publishing companies or literary initiatives or to take on publishing roles within charities, government bodies or other cultural organisations. It also provides skills that are highly transferable (from project management to digital literacy to team-working) and relevant to securing and building roles in the literary, digital and creative industries more broadly. All of these skills will ensure that graduates are able to succeed well beyond graduation and their first role in industry.
As part of this programme, graduates will have benefitted from a complementary set of employability workshops designed to help graduates to successfully compete in the labour market after graduating.
