What employers like about this subject
A degree in publishing will help you to learn subject-specific skills in editorial, production and design, marketing, and management, as well as in understanding publishing as a business and how it is changing in modern society. Useful transferable skills you can expect to develop include teamwork, entrepreneurship and business focus, creativity, the ability to work flexibly, presentation and critical research skills. Publishing is the most common industry for publishing graduates - not a surprise - but last year they also got jobs in advertising, management consultancy, retail, recruitment and the creative arts.
