courses that will satisfy some of the requirements for each degree.
Course topics include production, design, financial and marketing principles,
copy editing, and electronic publishing. Taught by professionals employed in
the publishing field, the courses introduce students to basic principles of
publishing and provide practical skills required in publishing
jobs. The emphasis at MMC in interdisciplinary studies prepares you in unique ways for
succeeding in the B.A./B.S./M.S. Program in Publishing.
The analytical skills developed in literature classes enable students to learn
quickly about critiquing the viability of a new manuscript, preparing a marketing
plan for a new college textbook, or understanding the legal issues in publishing.
The writing skills students develop transfer easily to copy-editing or rewriting.
The interdisciplinary nature of the Humanities major already encourages students
to integrate several disciplines. These skills are essential in a field that
requires thinking about the complex relationships among content, format, economic
impact and marketing.
Publishing industry experts all agree that technology is the major factor in the
future of publishing. Students who major in Communication Arts can bring their
background in media communication and their theoretical bases and practical
skills in digital production to a career rapidly developing its use of technology
and information systems.
Publishing is not just about texts. In fact, financial aspects often drive publishing
decisions. Accounting, financial management, computer information management,
and marketing, all part of the MMC major in Business Management, are essential
to the publishing industry.
