Graduate Certificate Programs

For students who choose not to pursue the MS Publishing degree, the department offers four 12-credit certificate programs. These programs are designed for professionals who would like to extend their knowledge of the publishing field by attending in-house sessions or by completing the curriculum requirements online. Courses include marketing, distribution methods, editorial principles, magazine circulation, and legal aspects of publishing. The program will enhance opportunities for professionals on the job.

Each certificate can be completed in one year and all credits can be counted toward the completion of the MS in Publishing degree. Certificate courses can be completed online and /or in evening classes held at Pace’s Midtown Center.

NOTE: Students enrolled in the certificate programs may apply earned credits to the Master of Science in Publishing degree; however, students already matriculated in the MS Degree may not revert to the Certificate program.
