Give Instructors and Students the Tools They Need and Turn Academic Coursework into Compelling Communications

QuarkXPress® for Your Design Department
Quark makes it easy for you to provide comprehensive instruction on the design tools your students need for a competitive edge.

Quark also gives you flexible options to manage software licenses so instructors and students have access to QuarkXPress – and your college or university maximizes its software spending. See Teachers and Faculty Information.

We also offer an App Studio Education Plan that includes 250 QuarkXPress licenses along with everything you need to prepare students for the world of digital publishing, equipping them to create next generation iPad, iPhone and Android apps. Discover the App Studio Education Plan.
