Course summary

This is the first programme in Scotland dedicated to children’s and young adult’s literature as a primary resource and a field of academic study. You will develop a specialisation that is highly valued in professions such as education, library services and children’s media.

WHY THIS PROGRAMME

  • The programme gives you the opportunity to take a literary and critical stance to well-loved texts, as well as to contemporary authors whose texts push the boundaries of children’s literature.
  • You will investigate new developments in the production of texts for children using multimodal forms and digital technologies.
  • You will discuss recent theories of language and literacy development and consider how they can be supported by traditional and multimodal texts for children.
  • This programme provides the opportunity to learn, share experiences and insights and create networks with international students from a range of backgrounds in teaching, publishing and related academic disciplines.

CAREER PROSPECTS

This programme is an excellent source of professional development if you’re already working in education, library services, publishing and children’s media, or are looking to move into these areas.
