Alumni - Marrisa Joseph, MA International Publishing

I would recommend this course to anyone who wants to learn about and work in the publishing industry, whilst making friends and having a great time whilst doing it.

I managed to go from being a complete novice to knowing so many different aspects of the international industry in just a year thanks to the MA in International Publishing. Each module was informative and enjoyable, and the range of modules in the second semester was extensive, which allowed me to tailor my learning to my interests.  Also, the Brookes MA has significant credibility in the publishing industry. I was told by my present employer that I was considered for the position just because I had completed the Brookes MA, and I now work at Osprey Publishing, with three other people who did the course. ...

Being able to choose my dissertation topic really developed my interest in a specialist area of music publishing, especially as it related to my BA degree in English and Music. In addition to the classes, the publishing department organises a fantastic array of speakers, visiting researchers and social events. Being part of the student reps committee for the course was great fun because I got to help plan the end-of-semester parties!
