Overview

Build expertise

Accomplished faculty who know the latest industry trends work with you to build your confidence and expertise in all facets of publishing. Through coursework you’ll learn about design and styles and how readers perceive printed and digital texts. Writing and editing courses within the Languages and Literatures Department give you the skills to work to polish and proof copy — and opportunities in graphic design let you create book covers and other art elements that give a perfect touch to the words inside.

Graduate with experience

Publishing majors at Hastings College take all their classroom work and put it to practice at the Hastings College Press on campus and at internships across the country. You’ll proof manuscripts, layout pages, design covers and then print and bind books used by fellow students on campus and sold all over the country. You’ll style and format digital editions like ePub used by Amazon Kindle and other e-readers. These are the demonstrable skills that help you stand out when applying for internships or that first job.

Programme Structure

Most Hastings students complete their degree in four years, and our four year guarantee is here to back it up. This means you’ll work closely with your advisor to chart a course in your major. Across the curriculum, many higher level classes are open to non-majors, so you can add a language or study music when you’re ready. Study abroad, do a service project or lead a club—there’s time, support and a plan for everything.
