Course content

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.

  • 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.
