M.S. in Publishing: Digital and Print Media
The professionalism and global perspectives of the M.S. in Publishing: Digital and Print Media program, as well as the benefits of studying in New York City, the center of the publishing industry, are what drew Joana Costa Knufinke to NYU-SCPS. She knows that an NYU-SCPS master’s degree and work experience in New York City will open many doors when she returns to her native Spain.
Costa Knufinke gained valuable international experience last spring when she traveled on behalf of the NYU-SCPS Center for Publishing, along with three fellow graduate students from the Center, to work as a volunteer at the Abu Dhabi International Book Fair. The students blogged about the fair and collaborated on an article that appeared in Publishers Weekly.
Costa Knufinke is the recipient of the 2011 Oscar Dystel Fellowship, awarded to an outstanding student in the graduate program in publishing. She holds an undergraduate degree in English language and literature, and a graduate degree in literature from the University of Barcelona. After earning her M.S. in Publishing, she will return to Spain to complete her Ph.D. in electronic publishing. Costa Knufinke’s studies at NYU-SCPS are sponsored by the Fulbright Program in Spain and the Spanish Ministry of Education.
