Krisan in Chicago has kindly volunteered to share with us what she learned at the Pace University informational session last week. Thanks for the detailed and insightful report!
This past Thursday, I had the opportunity to participate in an online chat/information session about the M.S. in Publishing and Certificate in Publishing programs at Pace University in New York City. The M.S. program is the oldest one of its kind in the country and has been in existence for approximately 25 years.
The M.S. program consists of a total of 36 credits--18 credits for required courses, 12 credits for elective courses, and 6 credits for the graduate seminar or internship. It is regarded as a high-caliber, rigorous program and is taught by current publishing professionals.
Certificates are also offered in the Business Aspects of Publishing, Book Publishing, and Magazine Publishing.
Both the M.S. and the Certificate in the Business Aspects of Publishing are offered in an online format vs. a traditional classroom format. The online classes are taught using Blackboard and are completed at the student's own pace. The online format allows for students who do not live in New York City to earn a reputable degree. It is typically completed within approximately 3 years online.
Merit and endowed scholarships are also available to students in this program at the time of their application.
December 1st is the priority deadline for applications. However, admission is rolling and applications are accepted at any time during the year.
