Certificate in Publishing


The Certificate in Publishing is not yet in place, but our publishing courses are. Check out the Introduction to Publishing (offered every fall) and the Practicum in Publishing (offered every spring).

The Practicum in Publishing 

Listed in NDSU’s Campus Connection as Seminar: Practicum in Publishing, course number AHSS 491/690

In the spring 2018 semester, students from North Dakota State University and the Tri-College are encouraged to enroll in the Practicum in Publishing,  listed as AHSS 491/690 Seminar. This course is typically reserved for students who have already taken the Introduction to Publishing, but the instructor, Dr. Suzzanne Kelley, is waiving that requirement for this semester as we work to build this unique publishing program.

Students enrolled in the Practicum in Publishing will have the opportunity to obtain and apply the skills of a publisher as they undertake editorial, publicity, and marketing activities for our forthcoming book releases. The students will take responsibility for key roles in social media marketing and development as well as working on line-by-line edits. The practicum puts into practice current methods and customs of scholarly and literary publishing, while meeting real-time publishing deadlines and schedules in preparation for national distribution of North Dakota State University Press books.

The Practicum in Publishing is offered every spring and is available for both Undergraduate and Graduate student credit. This practicum is repeatable for credit.
