I know that an advanced degree/continuing education is not necessary to enter publishing, since it's an apprentice style field. But I also know some programs are good for making connections and finding jobs immediately, which is important in a popular industry without many openings. Now, I've been researching programs in the U.S. for awhile. But . . .
I want to try for a one-year Marshall Scholarship.
Therefore, I've spent three or so days on various websites trying to figure out what universities offer publishing programs, the reputation of the universities, and the reputation of the program. Currently, I think the MA in Publishing at University College London or Oxford Brookes University look the best to me. But I wanted to ask people who are more familiar with the United Kingdom or the industry for input. I don't know if there is anyone reading this blog who I could talk to about this, but if there is, please leave a comment or e-mail me.
