Probably not directly, I imagine there will be related business type courses that are very applicable to the publishing industry (e.g. marketing type courses), and in terms of producing publishable content there are courses in e.g. journalism, creative writing etc. But I don't know if there are any courses in just "publishing" at undergraduate level because it's a bit specific - I would've though you might find something specific like that at masters level more than at undergraduate?

A number of universities offer a Master's in publishing, and they typically allow for an internship as part of the course.

At undergraduate level an English degree is typical. After all, good readers make good publishers. I worked in academic publishing for a (very) short time and everyone seemed to have a BA in English, although one had an LLB, which I imagine is actually very good training for publishing.
wow ok thank you so much

wow this sounds absolutely amazing. Just reading what you have said has made me really want to do a career in publishing and I'm so glad that at least on university offers this course. I was just worried that publishing wasn't seen as a job that you went to university for and I was worried, as student loans are so expensive, that I'd waste so much money going to uni for a publishing course to not be beneficial at all. Yet this sounds great and I would love to work for a large publishing company such as Penguin. Thank you for the time you took to wrote this and for helping me out I will defo check out.
