Publishing is in desperate need of new ideas and new media skills. If you take your Professional Writing degree with a specialization in Editing/Publishing, you can work on real-world publishing projects and develop the versatile skills many established publishers lack.
The Publishing specialization is set up around the WRT 346: Publishing in the 21st Century course, a project-based class in which students work with clients on publishing projects that may include traditional books, ebooks, audio books, mobile applications, and websites. Your jobs within those projects may involve editing, design, illustration, marketing, social media, and event planning.
