FlexiMasters (SoH)

FlexiMasters in Publishing

FlexiMasters in Publishing is designed to give learners an initial grounding in the primary principles, business, and artistry of contemporary publishing. Learners will develop their confidence, knowledge and employability in the publishing industry through a curriculum that combines courses such as Publishing in Contemporary Singapore, Book Editing, Magazine Editing, and Electronic Publications with appropriate topics from other FlexiMasters courses in the Humanities. Learners will acquire local knowledge and a global outlook through interaction with faculty well versed in editorial work, the history of publishing, the business of publishing, theoretical perspectives, new technologies of production, and emerging electronic forms. 

Learners who complete this FlexiMasters will not only have set out to master how publishing content is commissioned, designed, produced, and marketed across a variety of electronic and physical media, but will also develop a unique and enterprising mindset to carry forward in individual projects and with prospective employers.
