About this course

The Master of Publishing Studies program takes a proactive look at the world of publication, while deeply dissecting the meaning and reasons of writings both locally and internationally. Publishing requires the knowledge of many disciplines – from recognizing and appreciating truly great works, to understanding and applying new technologies to the publication industry. Be it a literary novel to a scientific paper, each publication has the potential to change how we think. Words can open the eyes of the world.
