    All professors were adjunct and full-time professionals in the publishing industry, so they provided connections. The college also had internships set up with various publishers in Boston.

    Master of Art degree in Publishing, Class of 2013

    Most graduate students worked full or part-time and attended classes in the evenings. It was a work hard, play hard crowd who usually got together after class for a drink. Very close-knit group of only 30 students per graduating class.

    Multiple computer labs with newest software. Most classrooms has computers as well. Campus is downtown Boston, and graduate students didn't live on campus, so I never saw those buildings. The library housed previous graduate students' master thesis projects, which we could check out and learn from.
