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.
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.
