Creating Books, Creating Windows to the Future and Past 

ppaFor over 30 years, PLU's minor in Publishing & Printing Arts (PPA) has offered interested students an interdisciplinary introduction to the world of publishing. One of the only such programs offered at the undergraduate level, PPA is an exciting, interdisciplinary minor housed in the PLU Department of English. The PPA program is highly respected by employers for its combination of pre-professional skills and solid liberal arts education.

PPA minors explore the ethical, cultural, and commercial issues confronting readers, writers, editors, publishers, booksellers, librarians, teachers, and all who value the written word. But PPA also offers students solid pre-professional skills, and each year our active internship program helps launch students into publishing-related careers across the country including jobs at Amazon and in New York publishing houses.
