Many of the modules taught within the Department of Information Studies as part of the MA in Publishing work as stand alone short courses, for those wishing to update professional skills in a particular area. The modules are taught over the course of one term, and usually comprise of 30 taught hours of lectures and practicals, followed by a coursework assessment (which is optional for short course students). If the assessment is carried out successfully, the short course module can count towards the Master's degree in the future, should it be pursued.
Timetables are designed to fit part time students, so the
courses would usually undertaken one morning or afternoon a week, over
the course of a ten week term. Please contact Dr Samantha Rayner (email@example.com) if you wish to discuss any of the courses.
PLEASE NOTE: Availability of these depends on class space, and on suitability for the module, and will vary accordingly from year to year. Please contact Ian Evans (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you have any queries about the possibilities from Sept 2016 onwards.
