Enter the Book Publishing or Magazine Publishing Sectors in Just Two Semesters

By Jason Subscribe to RSS | December 13th 2011 | Views:

"The Book and Magazine Publishing program at Centennial gave me a strong understanding of the Canadian publishing industry, offered numerous opportunities to meet industry professionals and introduced me to classmates who have now become good friends," says 2005 Book and Magazine Publishing Graduate, Maya Bahar.

Maya's testimonial demonstrates the reliability of this program, which trains students to enter either book publishing or magazine publishing in just one semester. Established in 1974, this award-winning and unique program has earned several accolades for academic excellence and for the career success of its graduates.

To apply for the Book and Magazine Publishing program, students must submit an official transcript demonstrating proof of successful completion of a post-secondary diploma or degree program. Centennial College will also consider applicants presenting a combination of partial post-secondary education and relevant work experience. Also, they must attend a program admission session that includes editing exercises, presentation of a portfolio of writing and a resume.

Specific courses include: Introduction to Publishing (this introductory course offers a broad overview of book publishing and magazine publishing to acquaint students with these two cultural industries. The material will be covered in a variety of classroom settings, including: lectures, class discussions, group work, guest speakers, and individual assignments. One or more field trips may be included, time permitting); Book Production (the course works its way through the entire book production process from design into type and then through the manufacturing processes of making books); Magazine Marketing (through lectures, readings, class discussion and hands-on work, students will be given an overview of all aspects of magazine marketing, and will explore strategies and develop materials to meet various marketing challenges); and more.

Meanwhile, one of the most hands-on features of the Book and Magazine Publishing Program is an industry field placement at a book or magazine publisher in Toronto, where students acquire work experience, industry knowledge and professional relationships. They also take part in publishing On the Danforth magazine twice a year.

In addition to their studies, by taking those program students will be an integral part of the team that helps to shape the evolution of Canada's cultural and literary landscape, and helps to build the careers of the next generation of writers in the publishing industry.

Book publishing and magazine publishing companies that have hired program graduates include: Random House Canada, Toronto Life Magazine, Nelson Educational Publishings, Chatelaine Magazine, Harper Collins Canada, Outpost Magazine, McClelland & Stewart, McGraw-Hill Ryerson and Profit Magazine. A career in book and magazine publishing promises a world of innovation, stories and culture that integrates creative, marketing and business skills.
