BA (Hons) English with Publishing
Combine your love of English literature with hands-on experience of the publishing industry. Explore six centuries of literature, from Shakespearean drama to the graphic novel, and choose from a variety of specialist options. Apply this knowledge to your publishing studies, where you will undertake work experience and train in design, editing, and marketing skills for print and digital publications, taking your own publishing project from the initial concept to the final product.
You will get access to some of the best letterpress facilities and workshops in the UK, and enrich your studies with field trips. You will have the opportunity to choose a sandwich degree with a placement year in the publishing industry, and boost your career prospects by working with Plymouth University Press, gaining valuable experience in publishing, arts management, marketing and the book trade.
