The Masters in Children’s Literature & Literacies is the only 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 MEd is an excellent source of professional development if you’re already working in education, library services and children’s media, or are looking to move into these areas.
It also provides a excellent foundation for an academic career or further study within English and Scottish literature and other fields with a focus on children’s literature and literacies.
You will take five core courses, one optional course and produce a dissertation based on a specialised topic.
Entry requirements for postgraduate taught programmes are a 2.1 Honours degree or equivalent qualification (for example, GPA 3.0 or above) in a relevant subject unless otherwise specified.
