As Ireland's only postgraduate programme dedicated to literature and publishing, this MA provides the opportunity to study the history and business of publishing within the context of literary study. The programme offers a perspective on the industrial and commercial dimensions to the production of literature and provides insights into book and magazine production, copyediting, publishing law, marketing, electronic publishing, book history and digital studies.
