If you’re considering graduate programs in publishing, you may be wondering just how relevant those courses are. After all, in an industry that is so heavily learned on the job, how much good could something a professor tells you in a classroom do? You’d be surprised.

Its trials and its benefits will be laid out in terms of my experiences, and perhaps you’ll come to the same conclusion I did.
