Welcome to the MS in Publishing program located at Pace University’s Midtown Campus in the Frederick French Building, at 551 Fifth Avenue, New York City.

For nearly 40 years, the program has been working with students seeking to acquire the skills, experience, and industry contacts necessary for a career in publishing. Pace University’s MS in Publishing Program prepares tomorrow’s publishing leaders with the experiences and expertise necessary for anyone seeking to enter the industry or to update their skills.

Our program is designed to equip students with comprehensive hands-on training in every aspect of book and magazine publishing and digital media:  content creation and editing, marketing strategies, book and magazine production, financial applications, and all aspects of digital publishing. The curriculum reflects the most current industry trends, allowing students to explore publishing in a variety of formats, including print, e-books, apps, mobile platforms, and developing and writing for blogs and websites.

Our faculty are experienced publishing professionals working in every aspect of publishing in both books and magazines as well as media and digital-only companies. They work closely with students, adding variety and excitement to classroom discussions with their own experiences and perspectives on the industry. Our location in the heart of the publishing capital of the world enables us to recruit top experts from virtually every field of publishing as adjunct faculty members and guest speakers.

Internships give students an opportunity to apply their knowledge in the real world.  In addition to interning at the big five book publishers and major magazine publishers such as Hearst and Conde Nast, our students intern at literary agencies, academic publishers, independent presses, digital-only publishers, and in a variety of companies that are flourishing in the digital age.
