sample books at Denver Publishing Institute

DENVER, CO—In response to COVID-19 and current circumstances, the University of Denver’s Publishing Institute (DPI) will move its summer program online for the 2020 session in order to balance student health with the need to preserve the DPI student experience. The program will be accepting applications through June 1, 2020. Students may apply by submitting an application on the Denver Publishing Institute website.

Most of the program remains unchanged. Students will be taught by the same group of industry leaders, have access to the same robust curriculum devoted entirely to books, and complete the same assignments as in on-campus coursework. Students will still earn six graduate-level quarter credit hours upon graduation. Tuition for the course will be $4,810.

The course dates remain the same (July 12–August 7), and students can expect course programming each day of the week (Monday through Friday).  While the majority of the classes will be taught live, utilizing both lecture and small group formats, the online format allows for pre-recorded sessions that students may view when it is most convenient to them.

DPI prides itself on providing opportunities for the incoming class to network with industry leaders. We are enhancing that offering by taking advantage of technology to enable our incoming students to network with DPI graduates currently working in publishing across the country. This new approach is designed to ensure graduating students have all the tools necessary to enter a post-COVID-19 workforce that is likely to be much more virtual than was previously the case.

The four-week program runs July 12 through August 7, 2020. Applications are open through June 1, 2020. For questions about the new online offerings, email Apply online at the Denver Publishing Institute website.
