Portland State University’s Graduate School in Book Publishing is a two year program that includes a student-run publishing house called Ooligan Press. They are one of 10 master’s departments in the country that offer a program in book publishing, but the only one who offer a press where students can make real books.
They have about 60 people enrolled at all times, with the application process happening once a year. Our goal was to increase enrollment as a whole by highlighting the hands-on aspect of the program, with a focus on diversity in regards to background and skills. But most importantly, to make people aware of how they can use their love of books in the real world, no matter their background.
