Master of Publishing
Canada's Premier Training Ground for Publishing Professionals
We provide tomorrow’s industry leaders with the tools needed to guide publishing enterprises through a dynamic and fast-paced environment.
The Master of Publishing (MPub) program is the only program in Canada to offer a postgraduate degree in publishing, and is the country’s premier training ground for publishing professionals.
In this innovative, full-time 16-month program in SFU’s Faculty of Communication, Art, and Technology, a select cohort of MPub candidates learn practical skills from faculty and guest industry professionals, within a rigorous academic environment. Students in the MPub program build a portfolio of work of a professional calibre in publication design, marketing, technology, cultural policy, management, and editorial. Throughout the program, MPub candidates also contribute in the authoring, editing, and curation of the Engage Blog.
Students who graduate from the program have a master’s degree from a major North American university. They also have a solid grounding in the informing principles as well as the art and business of publishing; they are connected with working professionals who will become their colleagues; and they have invaluable practical skills to carry into a career in any print or online publishing activity—trade, scholarly or corporate—with an existing operation, or in their own enterprise.
As part of its mandate to work closely with the Canadian publishing industry, the Master of Publishing program consults regularly with an Advisory Board.
