They are avid, active readers in their own right who understand the way the publishing market works. Beyond that, they also understand the specialized technological tools in use today, are strong proofreaders, understand how to identify and check facts, and communicate clearly and concisely with other departments in order to set a manuscript up for success through production, marketing, and media outreach. By the end of the course, students understand how these tools help editors meet the demands of their profession and thrive in the workplace.
