Question ID: 368224
I'm interested in learning about the publishing industry (books,
magazines) and one day starting my own small publishers house. I have
an undergraduate degree in english and french. Are there any
worthwhile graduate programs that focus on publishing (editing,
managing, marketing, designing, printing)? I'm more interested in an academic
university than a technological institute, but whatever is best.
