Directory of programs and classes in children’s and young adult literature, culture and media

This is an ongoing attempt to collect information about programs and classes in children’s, child, juvenile, kids, kiddie, middle school, young adult, teenage, teen, tween, young people’s, youth, adolescent literature, etc. in the United States and Canada. I am also finding courses on childhood and youth studies and children’s and young adult media and culture.

This website/document updates and revises the previous directories published by the Children’s Literature Association in 1986 and 1992, Directory of graduate studies in children’s literature. I also used the Lundin/Cubberly and Denman-West books for additional information.

The official Children’s Literature Association directory is at http://www.childlitassn.org. The ChLA is using the idea of direct contact between the association and the academic programs.

Dr. Anne Lundin taught at the University of Wisconsin Madison. Her book is Teaching children’s literature with Carol W. Cubberly. Dr. Cubberly is at the University of Southern Mississippi. Dr. Lundin is retired.
Dr. Margaret Denman-West taught at Central Missouri State University (University of Central Missouri/Central Missouri State Teachers College) and McDaniel University (formerly Western Maryland University). She is now deceased. Dr. Denman-West was one of my teachers when she was at Central Missouri State University (University of Central Missouri) as Mrs. Denman.
Children’s and young adult literature handbook: a research and reference guide by John T. Gillespie from Libraries Unlimited is a revised, updated and changed version of Dr. Denman-West’s book Children’s literature: a guide to information sources.
ENTRY INFORMATION:

Center/Special collection/miscellaneous information
List of courses

Most academic libraries have a curriculum, special collection or education collection of juvenile titles.
I have also provided some information about programs in the United Kingdom, Ireland, New Zealand, Australia, Greece, Japan, Germany, Thailand, and Taiwan. The information from the United Kingdom and Ireland is from the (British) Library Association. If anyone wants to add more information about other programs and other countries, please send them in. Some of the information is taken directly from the website.
Dominique Sandis provided the information about Greece.
I thank Dr. Katherine Capshaw Smith for the information about the University of Connecticut.
I looked at courses that could be used in an advanced degree or program in Education, English and Library and Information Science. An advanced degree can be masters, education specialist, advanced certificate, certificate of advanced study, Doctor of Education, Doctor of Philosophy, etc. There are undergraduate classes that might fit your needs.
The fields of Education, English and Library and Information Science have contributed greatly to the study of children’s, adolescent and young adult literature. I have combined the separate field listings to show what the particular college/university actually has and to show the cross-disciplinary and multi-disciplinary aspects of children’s and young adult literature. Childhood Studies, Youth Studies and Youth Development Studies are also contributing.
I DID NOT put down all of the Education, Literacy/Reading, English Education, English, Psychology and Library and Information Science courses needed for a degree or certification. If the course description used the words literature, materials or media, I usually added them
The Library and Information Science courses are usually part of a master’s program or certificate concentration in school, children’s or young adult librarianship. Most states have a requirement that a school librarian/instructional media specialist/library media specialist be certified as a teacher or educator.
The University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign and the Syracuse University began a collaboration called Web-based Information Science Education, http://www.wiseeducation.org. The consortium has grown to fourteen schools. The library and information science courses are online.

I tried to state a degree program that is specifically for children’s, adolescent and young adult literature.
The symbol (ALA) is for a master’s program in Library and Information Science accredited by the American Library Association.
The symbol (NCATE/AASL) is for a master’s program/certificate that specifically focuses on programs that are for school library media specialists.
NCATE is from the National Commission on Accreditation of Teacher Education.
AASL stands for American Association of School Librarians, which is affiliated with the American Library Association. Many of the school librarians are certified educators. Most of the school library media specialists programs also have certification programs. There are schools that are certified by NCATE but have not gone through the NCATE/AASL process. A number of higher education facilities are now in candidacy stage for NCATE. A number of the ALA accredited programs can also be used by the school library media specialists.
Usually, elementary and secondary teachers are certified educators. The National Commission on Accreditation of Teacher Education (NCATE) or the Teacher Education Accreditation Council (TEAC) and/or the various states Dept. of Education usually accredits education programs. Check the different sites for accreditation.
Universities and colleges are also accredited by bodies such as the North Central Association Commission on Accreditation and School Improvement, Middle States Association of Colleges and Schools, etc.
I am afraid that it was hard for me to work with .PDF files. I had more success with non-.PDF files. Please send any information needed. I now have a new computer as of July 2004. It will now be easier to work with the .PDF files.
I used a Google web directory, the old and new NCATE website, US News and World Reports Best Graduate Schools, ALA website and other information to work on this directory.
I lost the information for a short time but I was able to reconstruct most of it. I may have not put in all of the schools that I had before. Please correct any mistakes that I have made.
Please send information about special collections and centers about children’s and young adult literature for inclusion. There is a children’s literature special collections directory from the American Library Association. A second book on how to develop a special collection in children’s literature is also available from ALA. The American Library Association has a wiki for special collections in children’s literature: http://wikis.ala.org/alsc/index.php/SPECIAL_COLLECTIONS_IN_CHILDREN%27S_LITERATURE_WIKIOGRAPHY

I put in the class list any seminars and special topics, etc. that I could find. Please be careful with the seminars, topics, etc. as they may be offered one time, seldom, occasionally, etc. Check with your adviser.
There are classes about Education, English, Library and Information Science and its different variants, different social sciences and humanities, English Education, educational technology, play, whole language, history of the family, childhood in America, library services, humor, drama in the classroom, literacy, reading, folklore, mythology, literary criticism, film/media studies, popular culture, Victorian literature, creative writing, culture studies, youth studies, genre studies, country/area studies, literature studies, psychology, child study, childhood studies, children’s studies, American studies, social history, archive/museum studies, technology, phonics, foreign languages and literatures, comparative literature, women’s studies, theater, dance, puppetry, digital media, art, girls studies, boyology, boys studies, boyhood studies, music, disability, Youth Development Studies, video game studies, Comics Studies, Comic Book Studies, Graphic Novel studies, Word and Image, Archaeology, anthropology, etc. that can be used with children’s and young adult literature in your graduate program. There are undergraduate classes that are unique. I added them along with the (U) undergraduate and (U/G) undergraduate/graduate designation to show what might be available.

The American Library Association and the American Professional Association are working on programs for continuing education and updating librarians’ certification.

I tried not to add classes called thesis or dissertation.

Be sure and check college or university websites that have classes on the Internet for possible courses you can use.

I am trying to go to each state in the United States and province of Canada.

There is a book, Benchmarks in distance education: the LIS experience from Libraries Unlimited, copyright 2003. It documents distance education for the 28 ALA-accredited programs.

For all advisees: please work with your adviser for the best program you can get.

All mistakes are mine. Please tell me what and where they are so that I can correct the problems.

Thank you.

This course focuses on twentieth-century classics of children’s literature. Works covered include texts by L. Frank Baum, A. A. Milne, C. S. Lewis, and J. R. R. Tolkien.

Young adult novel (U/G)

This course will consider works published for and about teenagers, including Louisa M. Alcott’s Little Women, Thomas Hughes’ Tom Brown’s Schooldays, and J. D. Salinger’s Catcher in the Rye.

ISU has a 300-level Young Adult Literature class that is taught by each of the faculty in a different way (some do history and culture, some do more narratology, some do cultural and literary theory, often there’s a theme, like embodiment, or multicultural YA, or abjection), so students can take it more than once and get a different experience each time. This also applies to other courses.

Youth services librarianship is a rich concentration involving the study of children’s and young adult literature; storytelling and folklore in the oral tradition; young reader/writer interactions in multiple literacies; and librarianship in public and school settings. Questions that drive research in this area include the following:
• How does knowledge in the form of oral, print, and electronic texts shape, reflect, and enrich the lives of children and young adults?
• How do stories, books, visual media, and other forms of knowledge cross boundaries of age level, culture, history, time, place, medium, and meaning?
• How do we understand and facilitate connections between young readers/writers and texts/information?
• How is literacy affected in the transitions between traditional and electronic environments?
• How have youth services librarians, both individually and as a community, acted as canon shapers and intellectual freedom advocates in the history of publishing for youth?

Kerlan Collection
Children’s Literature Research Collections
Advanced graduate study in children’s and adolescent literature at the doctoral level focuses on topics that reflect the multidisciplinary nature of this literature: studies of text, of readers, and of contexts. Studies of texts include literary and content analyses from varied theoretical perspectives, as well as analysis of art, original manuscripts, and other material housed in the Kerlan Collection. Studies of readers include close examination of how children and young adults respond to literature, while research on contexts focuses on how literature is presented to children in libraries, homes, and classrooms. Both studies of readers and contexts are grounded in particular theoretical orientations. Faculty in other literacy track specializations, in other tracks within curriculum and instruction, and in other departments in both the College of Education and Human Development and the College of Liberal Arts regularly serve on M.A. and Ph.D. committees. The children’s/adolescent literature specialization in the Ph.D. track in literacy prepares researchers and teacher educators to: build on past research and explore new paradigms for research in literature
• engage diverse learners in multiple contexts through literature
• educate literacy teachers and leaders across their professional careers
• develop expertise in the critical analysis of contemporary children’s and adolescent literature

The Ph.D. program in Literature for Children and Young Adults has traditionally been one of the strongest in the country. The area of study offers graduate students opportunities to pursue disciplined, rigorous inquiries in the history and evolution of Children’s and Young Adult Literature as well as current trends and issues. The program is grounded in coursework in the History of Literature for Children and Young Adults, literary theory and its links with Children’s and Young Adult Literature, multicultural and international Children’s and Young Adult Literature, and the study of how children and young adults read and respond to this literature. The course of study also provides opportunities for exploring related topics that include (but are not limited to) genres such as picturebooks, fantasy, and poetry for children and young adults, relationships between popular culture and children’s and young adult literature, censorship issues, and selection and evaluation of literature for children and young adults, as explore the integration of literature throughout classroom content areas. The area of study is designed to provide pathways to additional areas of study in the School of Teaching and learning such as Reading and Literacy in Early and Middle Childhood, Adolescent and Adult Literacies and others. Our focus is the analyses of written and visual forms, genres, and content in children’s and young adult literature and the meaning of this literature for youth and adults in and out of school settings. As a literature program, situated in a College of Education and Human Ecology, we are especially interested in theoretical lenses that inform the relationships between texts and readers.

Children’s Literature Certificate
Books written for children are among the best-loved and best-remembered of all works of literature. They also provide some of the most important early learning experiences. In recent years, books written for children have attracted increasing interest from scholars and students as well as parents, reviewers, educators, and publishers. Studying books written for children provokes many questions, and trying to find answers for those questions generates speculations which intersect with the interest and knowledge of many academic fields as varied as anthropology and politics, literary studies and child development, classics and history, communication studies, and psychology. Why are these early books remembered? What precisely is it about them that is recalled? Are fairy tales too violent? Do children need their own books? What is suitable reading for a child, and who is to make the judgment? How do children’s books relate to films and TV?
The interdisciplinary Certificate in Children’s Literature offers students an opportunity to bring together studies across a broad range of subjects. The program is individually designed to meet the student’s particular interests and strengths. It provides a useful background for many areas of professional work and study, including teacher education, child development and child care, creative writing and illustration, child psychology, library science, graduate school, publishing, journalism, and bookselling. For more information on the study of children’s literature at the University, see http://www.pitt.edu/~childlit/clwelcome.html.

Cultures of Childhood. Courses in this area investigate historical and contemporary cultural discourses in texts that use the figures of “the child,” “the boy,” and “the girl” as important rhetorical strategies–not only print texts, but also Internet texts, films, TV texts, texts of material culture such as toys and video games, as well as oral texts such as family stories and schoolyard games. Studying texts designed for young readers, in particular, allows for theoretical investigations into the manufacture of consent in liberal democratic cultures. This area of concentration is supported by the presence of the Canada Research Chair in the Culture of Childhood in the Department of English and the related Centre for Research in Young People’s Texts and Cultures.

Children’s Literature
The focus of Children’s Literature research at Macquarie is on the meanings of texts produced for children in their social contexts, with particular emphases on ideologies and the shaping of subjectivities in relation to issues of ethnicity, gender, and other social issues. This focus involves a wide range of genres, periods and national literatures: current specific areas of research include Australian children’s literature; Arthurian fantasies; Chinese folktale; comedy and society; film and television; Japanese picture books; picture books generally; postmodernism in picture books and fiction; poetry anthologies; Young Adult fiction; studies of particular authors.

Majoring in Children’s Literature
The major/submajor in Children’s literature acquaints students with a wide range of literature produced for children and equips those who study it with skills to analyse and appreciate this material. A variety of inter-related courses is provided, designed initially to focus on students’ own reading responses. From this starting point, through exposure to a selection of critical theories, students’ literary skills are enhanced so that they develop informed perspectives on the writing, illustration and reading of children’s texts.
The Children’s Literature major/sub-major is unique in South Australia. Its relevance lies in the potential it has for the analysis of social and cultural values embedded in narratives that shape the way children conceptualise their world. The major/sub-major is a study of literature, with its traditional purposes and functions and examines why these have changed over time. Young children’s picture books; novels for children and adolescents; non-fiction; poetry; non-print media – all these genres and forms are examined within the major.
Children’s Literature courses contribute directly to the professional preparation of teachers, librarians and writers. They also provide intrinsically valuable non-vocational studies for parents and child-care workers. The Level 1 courses, Books and Readers and Developments in Australia, are offered as foundation studies.
The majority of the courses are available to students through flexible delivery.
A major in Children’s Literature can lead to honours and postgraduate studies in the field.

Children and Youth Studies examines how young people are involved and represented in development processes. It explores how poverty, equity, and social development shape childhood and youth from an interdisciplinary social science perspective, considering such topics as rights, participation, education, work, health, sexuality, media, new communications technologies and youth movements. The specialization in Children and Youth Studies responds to the emerging importance of children and youth in international development policy. It investigates how contemporary social, political-economic and cultural processes are changing the lives of young people in novel ways and how the young actively shape their society’s future.
This specialization provides participants with an understanding of how children and youth are involved in development processes at the global and local levels. It explores issues of poverty, equity, rights and social development of the young from an interdisciplinary perspective that draws on sociology, political economy, anthropology, law and social history. It similarly investigates organizations, movements, and interventions that have shaped, or have attempted to shape, childhood and youth in different contexts. Participants will become familiar with the works of key classic and contemporary thinkers whose ideas have informed policies relating to childhood and youth, and develop an in-depth understanding of rights-based approaches. They will also gain a grasp of changing policy perspectives in selected areas including crime, abuse and neglect, education and work, health and sexuality, media and new communications technologies, and participation.
After completing the specialization, participants will be familiar with the major theoretical perspectives and policy debates on children and youth. They will be able to place individual problems within their broader analytical and policy contexts and participate with confidence in debates, research and analysis on key issues in the field of children, youth and international development.
Education represents a critical component of the human and social development of children and youth. ISS contains unique expertise in the field of education—understood as formal schooling at the primary, secondary and tertiary levels, non-formal education, and educational alternatives. Its uniqueness and strength derives from its multidisciplinary which spans economics, anthropology, sociology, political economy, and social history, and its expertise across several regions including Asia, sub-Saharan Africa, the Middle East, and Latin America. ISS staff and students working on educational issues share a common interest in engaging critically with current theories and policy debates

The MA in Children’s Literature and Culture at the University of Bolton is the only course in the North West dedicated to this area of study.
The course is designed for anyone who has an interest in children’s literature and culture including professionals who work with children, for example teachers, librarians or those in health and social service occupations, and also interested parents who want to learn more about this exciting world and share it with their children.
You will study many aspects of the field including the work of children’s authors such as J.K. Rowling and Philip Pullman and ‘adult’ authors who have also written for this growing market, such as Neil Gaiman and Salman Rushdie. You will also examine the broader field of children’s culture including picture books, graphic novels, films, television and toys. You will examine these different media from both historical and contemporary perspectives, exploring how the market for children’s culture has become big business and how it often attracts both child and adult audiences.

Half the world’s population is under the age of twenty-five and almost 90% of these young people live in poor countries. Over the past two decades, awareness has grown of the changing conditions of young people’s lives. High level responses, such as the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child (1989), have encouraged NGOs and governments working at a more local level to take onboard the needs, experiences and views of children and young people. Academic research concerning children, youth and international development has also advanced considerably in the disciplines of geography, anthropology, sociology, psychology and development studies. This research has not, until now, been widely disseminated through postgraduate taught courses in the UK.
This course is designed to equip you with the conceptual understanding and breadth of empirical knowledge that will enable you to critically evaluate policy and practice in the area of children, youth and development and give you the skills necessary to design and undertake research relating to children, youth and development. It is available full time or part time and can incorporate a short placement.

Why this course?
This MA offers a uniquely inter-disciplinary approach to the study of childhood, children’s literature and culture, drawing as it does upon the expertise of staff in English, history and education
• The course uses contemporary and traditional texts which can either feed into a related career or be studied purely for enjoyment of the subject
• The programme is taught by a committed and research active course team.
Could be done by independent study
The MA in Constructions of Childhood, running since 2000, is offered at both the Bedford and Leicester City campuses (see web site for details). It is an interdisciplinary programme (combining English, History and Education) which includes a large children’s literature component, some of it based on the Hockliffe Collection of early children’s literature. The programme consists of a compulsory Research Methods module, three taught modules (Representations of Gender in Children’s Literature; Twentieth-Century Childhoods, and Comparison of Fin de Siecle and Millennial Narratives of Childhood), and a dissertation.
After completing the MA, there are excellent opportunities for students to continue their studies by undertaking a higher degree by research in the new and exciting fields of children’s literature and/or childhood studies
Programme
The MA in Constructions of Childhood offers a uniquely interdisciplinary approach to the study of children’s history, literature and culture. It examines the history of children in Europe, theoretical debates about the nature of childhood, and the representation of the child in many different textual and visual media. Staff from the departments of English, History, Education, Media and Art History will contribute to the course, many of whom are leaders in this field.

Taught modules cover the development of our modern understanding of childhood, and the idea and representation of childhood as it developed in the nineteenth century. A third module reflects the current research of staff members, offering a team-taught, multi-disciplinary investigation of aspects of childhood in the twentieth century and today. By the end of the course, students will have a clear understanding of how concepts of childhood have changed since the eighteenth century, and what has caused those changes. The role of children’s literature in the construction and communication of these ideas of childhood will receive particular attention, with seminars focused on everything from the fairy tales and didactic tracts of the eighteenth century, through the children’s classics of the Victorian and Edwardian periods, to the much more diverse and multi-media children’s texts of today.
De Montfort University is fortunate in possessing the Hockliffe Collection, one of the most significant collections of rare early children’s books in the country, and these books will be available to students as they undertake their studies. The early history and literature of childhood is a long-neglected area of scholarship, and the Hockliffe Collection can form the basis of exciting new research for the dissertation component of the course.
Teaching/Assessment
In addition to a compulsory Research Methods module (combining generic Humanities research skills and more course-specific skills), there are three taught modules, offered on a cyclical basis, and a final dissertation (doubly weighted). Teaching in each module (except the dissertation) will be by a weekly two-hour face-to-face session, and all students will be expected to read extensively in preparation for each session. Assessment on all taught modules will take the form of a seminar paper and an extended written essay.
Mode: part-time over 2 years or full-time one year
The course aims to develop students’ Masters level skills in literary and historical analysis, including:
• The critical interpretation of primary and secondary texts for and about children
• The ability to relate these texts to their historical contexts
• The confidence to engage in theoretical debates in the field.
The programme offers taught modules that include:
• Twentieth Century Childhood
• Fin de Siecle and Millennial Narrative of Childhood
• Representations of Gender in Children’s Literature.
The modules are designed to investigate the historically contingent nature of childhood as a cultural space from the nineteenth century to the present day. The role played by classic, popular and media texts for and about children in constituting the child and children’s culture is also explored.

As part of the course students will have access to very valuable archive collections which include the Hockliffe Collection, regarded as one the most important collections of early children’s books in Britain from the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries. In addition to this, the PE College archive is an important multi-media collection of photographs, documents and books dating back to 1903 and the Kindergarten College archive is a similar collection dating back to 1882.
The course is taught on a part-time basis over two years. During this time students undertake three taught modules, a research module and an independent dissertation. The four modules are spread equally across the two year period and consist of:
Twentieth Century Childhoods
This module explores many features of childhood during the twentieth century, whilst the focus is predominantly on Britain the module also has a multicultural element to it. Theories of childhood and view on the role and value of the child constantly changed during the twentieth century and the role of the State in this area increased. This module aims to examine the impact of the different approaches to the construction of the child through a range of sources including official documents, autobiographies, oral history, film and literature.
Fin de Siècle and Millennial Narratives of Childhood
This course will encourage you to explore some of the similarities and contrasts between the fin de siècle (end of the nineteenth century and beginning of the twentieth) and the millennium in terms of developments in children’s literature and in terms of conceptions of childhood as a cultural space. The fin de siècle, also known as the first golden age of children’s literature, witnessed a reaction against the narrowly didactic strain in earlier Victorian literature for children. This manifested itself partly in the flowering of texts that appealed to the creative power of the child’s imagination. This is in marked contrast to the grim realism that characterises a good deal of contemporary literature for children and adolescents, literature that addresses issues such as drug abuse, teenage pregnancy, homelessness and so on. The suppression and/or denial of child sexuality in literature of the first golden age has been replaced by a preoccupation with the sexual identity and behaviour of child protagonists, and, by extension, of child readers. High profile cases of child criminality, notably the murder of James Bulger by two young boys, mean that the late Victorian idealisation of childhood as a space has given way to a view of childhood as a time of potential danger and threat. The course will introduce students to a wide range of critical and historical perspectives on the literature and culture of both periods
Representations of Gender in Children’s Literature
This module reviews how gender is represented in Children’s literature. It explores the feminist critique of the role children’s literature has played in gender acculturation along with the stereotypical gender characters that appear throughout children’s literature. In addition to this students will explore the feminist responses to the characterisation of women as weak females or wicked witches in traditional fairy tales. Students will also examine the contrast between the traditional gendering of children and adolescents with the theme of gender and genre crossing that occurs in more contemporary writing for children
Research Methods
This module provides students with a theoretical grounding in what constitutes research. Students will learn what research is, whether there can be a clear distinction between primary and secondary sources and what defines evidence. On completion of the module it is anticipated that students will have the core knowledge, tool and skills needed to successfully undertake their dissertation.
Dissertation
The dissertation provides students with an opportunity for independent work into an area that is of particular interest to them. This interest could stem from one of the modules that has been taught during the course or could be a separate issue that a student has a particular interest in. The dissertation should contain an element of originality within it that can be through the topic chosen to study or the methods that are used to investigate it. The Dissertation is handed in at the end of November, following the completion of the two years of taught modules.
Teaching and Assessment
Attendance on the course is for one evening per week and will consist of a lecture and a seminar. Individual tutorials will be held throughout the course in order to help students prepare for their assessed work. The emphasis is on student participation throughout the taught modules and as a result students will be expected to undertake preparation for each session which could be through written assignments, reading or research. As with all study at Masters level, this course requires students to be highly committed and self motivated.
Assessment on the course is the same for all modules except for the dissertation; students will be expected to undertake a presentation (including a 2,000 word written version) and submit a 4,000 word written assignment. The Dissertation is a double module and is submitted in the summer term of the 2nd year of the course.

Master in Literature/Post Graduate Diploma in Comics Studies
MLitt/PGDip Comics Studies
The MLitt in Comics Studies is the only one of its kind in the UK – a one year course allowing students to examine comics and graphic novels in terms of genre, style, formal properties and history, while also providing, in various option modules, the opportunity to focus on the creative aspects of comics production. The core modules explore comics as autobiography and different international comics traditions, and the dissertation element of the course allows students to research any aspect of comics history (subject to acceptance of a proposal).
The modules offer the opportunity to study the following:
• the history of comics, and the formal properties of the medium
• different genres, styles and categories of comics
• writing for comics, with classes and workshops on scriptwriting skills
• comics artwork and the creative process
• practical advice on publishing and developing a career as a comics scholar, or a writer or artist, including access to industry professionals
The academic work is also supported by a range of activities which will be of great interest to students enrolled on the course, such as conferences, talks and workshops with acclaimed comics creators, and comics professionals, scholars and researchers. Who is the course for?
The Comics Studies MLitt has been developed for graduates who have an interest comics and graphic novels, and who want to pursue this at postgraduate level. Comics and Graphic Novels are a hugely important part of contemporary art, literature and popular culture, and comics scholarship is an expanding field. Those with an interest in the creative side of comics, either as a writer or artist, or both, will find the course very useful in terms of expanding their knowledge of the history of comics, and the artistic and literary potential of the medium. There will also be the opportunity to enhance practical skills related to the creation of comics, for those with abilities and interests in this direction.

This MA offers a uniquely inter-disciplinary approach to the study of childhood, children’s literature and culture, drawing as it does upon the expertise of staff in English, History and Education.
The course uses contemporary and traditional texts which can either feed into a related career or be studies purely for enjoyment of the subject. The programme is taught by a committed and research active course team.
The course aims to develop students’ Masters level skills in literary and historical analysis, including:
• The critical interpretation of primary and secondary texts for and about children
• The ability to relate these texts to their historical contexts
• The confidence to engage in theoretical debates in the field.
The programme offers taught modules that include: Representations of Gender in Children’s Literature Twentieth Century Childhoods Fin de Siecle and Millennial Narrative of Childhood.
The modules are designed to investigate the historically contingent nature of childhood as a cultural space from the nineteenth century to the present day. The role played by classic, popular and media texts for and about children in constituting the child and children’s culture is also explored.
In addition to the three taught modules named above, students undertake a compulsory Research methods module and a dissertation (double weighting). Teaching for each module takes place in a two hour session taught on one evening per week. It is expected that students will undertake a significant amount of self-directed study.

A MEd in Critical Approaches to Children’s Literature was launched in 2003 as part of the Cambridge Education Faculty’s Modular M.Ed. The first year of this two-year course is open to suitably qualified candidates in teaching, librarianship, postgraduates in English working at higher degree level and those already on the MEd who choose to take it as their second year module. The second year is only open to those who have already taken the first year. The course covers a wide range of children’s literature and critical theory; emphases include journal writing and writing for children; visual texts; poetry; oral texts; media texts; children’s responses to texts.
Mode: part-time over two years
Student numbers: 12 students enrolled in the first year

Approaches to Children’s Literature
The academic study of literature for children is a relatively new discipline, one which has developed quickly over the last ten years with new undergraduate and masters’ courses springing up in many parts of the UK. It is also fast growing internationally. The subject has wide appeal, as most people are interested in the books they read as children, or which their own children read, or which they teach in classrooms. The power of literature in society, and its shaping influence in childhood, make it an important field of study. Children’s literature has natural links with other disciplines, some of which are represented in other masters’ courses at the Faculty of Education, such as history, psychology, sociology, English literature, cultural studies, media studies.
This course offers participants a chance to examine some significant genres of children’s literature, including media texts, illustrated texts, poetry and fiction. Participants will be expected to engage with some of the key debates in the field and to consider a range of theoretical perspectives – from Romanticism to reader-response theory; feminist criticism to postmodernism; historical studies to New Historicism; formalism to semiotics. The course addresses the different ways childhood is constructed in a range of texts, as well as taking a critical view of young readers and their reading choices. Close textual study and the history of children’s literature are embedded within the course. In addition, participants will engage in qualitative action research into visual literacy and will have the chance to write for children within a supportive environment.
The course offers students opportunities to:
• examine definitions of children’s literature and the different ideological perspectives which inform them;
• learn about the history of children’s literature within the context of the prevailing ideas and debates of their period, and to examine texts for children as part of changing cultural practices in literacy;
• develop knowledge of competing theories about reading, producing, promoting and analysing texts for children;
• develop awareness of shifts in the construction of childhood both within texts written for young readers and within the critical literature;
• develop knowledge of a range of genres, authors and forms of text and to consider children’s own responses to them.
• become analytical interpreters of primary texts for children, and skilled readers of critical texts relating to the field of children’s literature;
• develop critical knowledge and understanding of key debates within the field of children’s literature.
In the course structure, module 1 is the introductory module, leading into advanced study within module 2; similarly, modules 3 (introductory) and 4 (advanced) are linked to provide a coherent whole.
Module 1 : Poetry for Children (introductory)
An introduction to the range of poetry written for children within the context of key debates and critical approaches to children’s literature as a whole, including different representations of childhood over time in poetry for children. In addition, students will be given the opportunity to write poetry for children.
Module 2 : Fiction for Children (advanced)
The content for this unit will be examination of short stories and novels for children. The focus will be on developing theory, extending the examination of ideological positions introduced in unit 1 and applying them to a range of fiction genres. In addition, students will be given the opportunity to write fiction for children.
Module 3: Children Reading Texts (introductory)
An introduction to the range of texts for children, including media texts, within the context of key debates and critical approaches to children’s literature, including different representations of childhood. In addition, students will be invited to write autobiographically about their personal reading histories.
Module 4: Reading the Visual (advanced)
The content for this unit will be multimodal texts which will be examined in the light of different conceptual frameworks. This is the only unit where students undertake an empirical study; in this case it concerns using picturebooks with children and analysing their responses in a range of forms. In addition, students will develop some of the critical approaches introduced in unit 1 and apply them to multimodal texts.

Students will also be required to attend a Core Research Training Course, comprising two further modules and taking up to one-third of the total teaching time.
University of Central England http://www.uce.au.uk
A Children’s Literature programme within the Masters Degree in Literary Studies in the Faculty of Computing, Information and English was launched in
2003. Areas covered are fantasy; folk and fairy tales and picture books.
RM? Dissertation?
Mode: full-time and part-time [over ? years?]
Consider the historical development of the fantasy genre from the mid-19th century until the present day and examine the reasons for the everlasting appeal of this genre to the child reader; in fairytales and folktales: tellings and retellings, you will focus on the evolution of the folktale into the fairytale; in picture books: text and illustration you will chart the development of the picture book for children and young adults by studying Lewis Carroll and J. K. Rowling.
The specialist modules currently on offer within the route are concerned with three key areas of children’s literature.
In Fantasy writing for children students will consider the historical development of the fantasy genre from the mid-nineteenth century until the present day and examine the reasons for the everlasting appeal of this genre to the child reader.
In Fairy Tales and Folk Tales students will focus on the evolution of the folktale into the fairytale and critically evaluate a variety of modern fairytale formats including film, feminist contemporary fairytales and picture book retellings.
In Victorian Children’s Literature students will examine the nineteenth century construction of “childhood” as a separate category of experience demanding its own literature, and the effect this has on the didactic function traditionally ascribed to books read by children

The Department of Design offers an MA in Children’s Book Illustration by full time study. The course focuses on all aspects of narrative and sequential image-making related to the realisation of creative children’s books, and the production of related electronic, and interactive media. The course will focus on the processes of ideas generation, character design and analysis, creative writing, and market, educational and social issues related to the design of narrative material for young people.
The MA in Children’s Book Illustration is aimed at both professional practitioners wishing to pursue a sustained period of time developing new ideas or recent graduates wishing to focus their studies and refine ideas at an advanced level. The course will also consider students from non-traditional illustration backgrounds, such as fine artists, graphic and Internet designers and animators, providing they can offer clearly articulated and informed reasons for wishing to study Children’s Book Illustration at an advanced level. Furthermore, students should be able to demonstrate an ability to critically examine, analyse and evaluate contextual and philosophical issues relating to their intended programme of study. The Children’s Book Illustration programme has a clearly defined study structure, but also provides the opportunity for both focused and eclectic exploration within the field of children’s illustration, and allows students to develop their personal philosophies on the subject with a view to developing a personal area of specialism. This strong emphasis on personal exploration provides the individual with maximum flexibility in terms of a chosen area of study, underpinned by appropriate staff support and guidance. As well as traditional picture and story books, children’s designers and illustrators are developing e-books, and other interactive products such as CD ROMs. Spin offs of these activities include character design for toys and games design, and also animation.
ADMISSIONS CRITERIA
Applicants will be expected to be from a practical visual communications background, such as an illustration course, and we welcome applicants from other related Art and Design disciplines. Criteria for entry is usually through a first degree in a related discipline, although we encourage applicants with other relevant professional experience. Admission to the course is through interview and presentation of a portfolio of relevant work. Applicants are also required to produce a statement that broadly outlines their intended programme of study.
COURSE CONTENT
The MA course exists within the framework of the University modular scheme, and your course is a full-time study programme over three semesters. Students undertake a total of nine modules, some of which are double in size. The modules have been chosen and scheduled to allow the students to attain the stated aims and learning objectives set out for the course. With this philosophy in mind the course team sought to develop a structure in which there is a balanced and appropriate integration of theory and activity and since the programme is fundamentally ‘design driven’ we have sought to ensure continuity of activity. Central to the programme is the ‘statement of intent’ drawn up during the beginning of your studies – this forms the backbone of the postgraduate activity and provides the terms of reference for assessable outcomes. The student is supported by staff input through a series of design activities during Semester 1, designed to identify an area or interest that can then be
fully explored through the following two semesters. The formal presentation of this initial research activity and the conclusions drawn, form the basis of the ‘statement of intent’ document. Running parallel with, and complementary to, the design modules are two Research for Creative Design Practice modules. These modules provide the theoretical underpinning, one being studied during Semester 1 and the
other during Semester 2. Semester 2 provides the opportunity to explore issues through a dynamic research experience that, once again, is defined and structured by the individual. Either by a single placement, or through a series of placed visits, the student is able to undertake further exploration/ research directly within the context of their chosen area. The final Semester of studies provides the individual with the opportunity to bring together all that has been developed and researched through the preceding two semesters of study. As a summary of the original ‘statement of intent’, a final major
design activity and Postgraduate Project/Dissertation are undertaken and presented at an end of year exhibition. The course is supported by extensive computer, studio and workshop facilities located within the department and the University as a whole. There is also a programme of guest lecturers, company and consultancy visits as well as exhibitions and extra workshops.
ASSESSMENT
Both the practical and theoretical elements will be assessed both during and at the end of each module. There are broad outlines to the nature of the deliverable aspects for assessment, but the final form of the assessment strategy and criteria is the result of collaboration between student and staff. Successful completion of the full nine modules leads to the award of MA. However, for students who do not wish to or, who are unable to, complete the full diet, there are intermediate exit awards at appropriate stages.
CAREER OPPORTUNITIES
The MA will help further career opportunities within commercial design practice – giving recognition to each student’s individual practical and intellectual abilities.

We are living in a “golden age” of children’s books. Every publishing house now has a separate children’s division and has made a substantial investment in this area. In this unique programme, you will have the chance to study classic and contemporary children’s literature and produce your own, with input from some of the most well known authors, publishers and TV producers of today. The course is aimed at those wanting to pursue a career as professional children’s writers, those already in employment related to children’s books such as bookselling, teaching, nursing,
librarianship and those wanting to get a better understanding of children’s books.

This multi-disciplinary course begins by exploring the idea of ‘the child’ and changing constructions of childhood. Both literatures for children, from picture books to young adult fiction (the child as reader), and literary representations of children (the child as subject), will be considered from a variety of perspectives. Children’s acquisition and use of language, from both linguistic and psychoanalytic viewpoints, the history and theory of childhood, and literary theory will inform analysis of works ranging from fantastic fiction by George MacDonald and Philip Pullman, to fictional engagements with childhood, from Dickens to McEwan, to children’s fiction by predominantly adult writers, such as Salman Rushdie and Jeanette Winterson.
The course can be studied on a full-time or part-time basis and is timetabled to run on one evening per week. The core modules will be combined with occasional intensive Saturday workshops, when there will opportunities to work with visiting scholars.
This course would be ideal for those with an education or Humanities background or those interested in writing for children.
The course benefits from research strengths and wider research culture within the Department of Humanities, including Literature, History, Language and Religion, Philosophy and Ethics. Students awarded the MA will be equipped to undertake research for an M Phil or PhD.

This new programme combines the theory, practice and performance of children’s literature within a variety of contexts. The emphases are literary, contextual, practical and vocational. It gives students from a range of backgrounds and occupations an opportunity to widen and deepen their knowledge of key texts in the field, to develop the latest critical thought pertaining to children’s literature, and to consider this literature in its contexts of nurture, education and wider social significance. It also offers options to create literature for children, to professionalise literary workshop practice with young people, to consider the nature of the industry of children’s literature publishing, and to establish links with it for the benefit of students’ professional intentions.

The longest-established MA in the field. Students take three core modules: one on Critical Theory, and one each on nineteenth and twentieth-century children’s literature. They then choose three of six optional units: North American Children’s Literature; Commonwealth Children’s Literature; Children’s Radio, Film and Television; Myth and Folktale in Children’s Literature and Popular Forms of Children’s Fiction before writing a 20,000 word dissertation.
Mode: part-time and full-time over 1-2 years
The MA in Children’s Literature offers students a chance to explore and contribute to an exciting and expanding area of academic study and research. This was the first course of its kind to be offered in the UK and it has built up a strong and experienced teaching team who are active in research and publication.

Children’s literature as an academic field addresses the cultural construction of childhood in all its aspects: how do texts produce ideas about ‘childhood’, ‘reading’, and ‘writing’? What kinds of approaches are available for putting into question the critical and cultural narratives of childhood, pedagogy, and children’s literature? Students venturing on this course will be expected to be excited by, and interested in, the most challenging kinds of readings and analysis, and the most demanding theoretical issues and topics. This field is increasingly situated at the heart of critical and theoretical challenges to discourses of identity and pedagogy, and Reading’s MA staff is at the forefront of research in this field worldwide.
The main approaches in the course are drawn from literary theory and cultural studies. Normally, entry is open to those with a first degree in English or in a discipline, which has included a substantial study of literature.

Master of Arts Education
Postgraduate diploma Education
Postgraduate certificate Education
The MA Education, running since 2000, offers a specific route for students who wish to focus on children, child development, and the professional application of children’s literature. Although offered as an Education degree, this specialism is not designed exclusively for teachers but aims to be of interest and use to all those who have a personal and/or professional interest in children and children’s literature. Students taking this route take three dedicated modules: ‘Journey Towards Modern Fantasy’; ‘Authors and Themes’ and ‘Issues and Analysis in Children’s Literature’ together with a
Research Methods module before submitting a 20,000 word dissertation
Mode: part-time, normally over three years
If you have a personal and/or professional interest in children and children’s literature, this exciting programme offers you the opportunity to indulge in the pleasure of reading while developing high-level skills and understanding in literary and linguistic analysis. You will find the course personally and professionally enriching. It will enable you to develop new and deeper insights into the world of children’s literature.

You will be taught in three modules that cover rich themes: developments in children’s literature from myth and legend to contemporary fantasy; characteristics of specific authors’ work and pervading literary themes; and links to sociology and cultural studies through considering key social and cultural issues in children’s literature. In all three modules you will use a wide range of theoretical and analytical tools for literary study, complemented by the approaches taught on the generic research methods module ‘Practice, Principles and Theory of Educational Enquiry’.

This programme is unusual in that it engages as deeply with primary texts (children’s books) as with academic and theoretical literature
This programme is aimed at education professionals and parents/careers that recognise the significance of literature in children’s literacy development and its impact on their emotional, moral, social, cultural and political education.

The programme may be followed through to MA, or you may wish to study only for the intermediate awards of Postgraduate Certificate (PgC), or Postgraduate Diploma (PgD). These are choices you can make as you progress through the programme.

The National Literacy Strategy has underlined the necessity for teachers to embed language and literacy teaching in the use of well chosen texts. Deep and extensive knowledge of literacy texts is vital, as is the teacher’s ability to analyse their linguistic and literary features and to identify their potential for children’s learning. As a result, children’s literature is a significant area of study for anyone working with children in educational and social settings and in their home.

The programme will enable you to develop transferable skills in linguistic and literary analysis and equip you with the intellectual tools to support analysis from a variety of perspectives. There is an emphasis on giving you the opportunity to gain deep knowledge of, and pleasure in, a broad range of children’s literature. CONTENT
The programme involves four taught modules and a thesis by supervised independent study a follows:
Journey Towards Modern Fantasy – exploring the development of literature from oral origins and setting fantasy in a historical context
Authors and Themes – studying a wide range of authors and their ideological and cultural influences
Issues in Children’s Literature – investigating the way in which children’s literature reflects and challenges race, gender and class issues, through analysis of contemporary and pre-twentieth century poetry and story
Inquiry Methods Module – introduces you to central issues in approaches to carrying out educational research – Thesis – enables you to undertake a major self chosen investigation into some worthwhile aspect of children’s literature.

Running since 1993, this is a flexible MA and the only one in the UK to be offered by Distance Learning as well as on site. It is supported by regular conferences and a biennial international summer school. Students take three compulsory modules: Research Methods, Critical and Theoretical Perspectives and at least one of 3 modules concerned with visual elements of children’s literature: Visual Texts; History of Children’s Book Illustration and Children’s Literature in Performance. Three more modules are then chosen from an extensive menu consisting of Origins and Developments of Children’s Literature; Children’s Literature 1900-1960; Contemporary Children’s Literature Written in English; Children’s Literature in Translation; American Children’s Literature to 1933; American Children’s Literature 1933 to the Present Day; Verse and Voice; Time and History in Twentieth-Century Children’s Literature; Alternative Narratives; Children’s Literature of Migration; Research Enquiry, and Children as Readers. A 20,000-word dissertation is submitted to fulfill the requirements of the programme.
Mode: part-time and full-time over 1-6 years; on site and by Distance
Learning (note: not all modules are available by Distance Learning and some
have slightly different titles and content from those taught on site)
This popular programme not only involves the study of children’s books, in all forms (including stage, film and television adaptations), but also their influence within our culture. We are internationally acclaimed for our work in Children’s Literature, and this programme allows you to combine an overview with the opportunity to specialise in a field where original research is flourishing.

As a student on the MA programme, you will be encouraged to explore the relationships between the adults who produce, publish, and in various ways, introduce books to children, and the children who are meant to read them. You will also be introduced to critical theories and methods, enabling you to analyse the various sign systems employed in children’s literature, and so to identify and evaluate the kinds of messages and value systems encoded in books for young readers. After following a compulsory course in Critical & Theoretical Perspectives, you will then be able to choose from many module options, or alternatively to pursue your own interests Key areas of study:
• Critical and Theoretical Perspectives
• Children’s Literature in Translation
• Children’s Literature in Performance
• Illustrations/Picture Books
AIMS: This programme aims to:
• study children’s literature as a literary field in itself and in terms of its social, cultural and historical constructions;
• develop critical debate and enquiry in the field of children’s literature;
• enquire into current constructions of childhood and the ways in which these relate to those obtaining in earlier periods;
• investigate the ways in which children’s literature has been and continues to be used as a forum for transmitting and challenging dominant ideological constructions of society;
• facilitate the means for the communication of new insights and perspectives both among module participants and beyond.
MA students:
• promote an intellectual climate in which research into such areas as the nature of children’s literature and its relationship to its context and its readers is fostered.
LEARNING OUTCOMES: Students who successfully complete the programme will:
• gain knowledge of a wide range of literary works written for or appropriated by children, and of the social, cultural and historical contexts of their production;
• develop an awareness of the processes involved in the evolution and constitution of the canon of children’s literature and the transmission of it to children;
• understand a range of appropriate critical theories and methods, such as feminism, Marxism, psycho-analytic theory, reader-oriented criticism, structuralism and post-structuralism, thus facilitating the analysis both of literary texts in themselves and the response of the adult and the child reader to them;
• gain knowledge of the various interpretations of the concept of the ‘child’ current today and sustained by writers of earlier periods;
• develop the ability to analyze the various sign systems encountered in children’s literature (including visual and performance texts) and thus to identify and evaluate the kinds of messages and value systems encoded in books for young readers;
• develop an awareness of the complexity of the relationship between the adults who produce, publish and introduce children’s books to children, and the children who are intended to read them;
• gain knowledge of the range of approaches appropriate to personal and group investigation of children’s literature in itself and in its social context, and of the response of the reader to it.
MA students will:
• develop the ability to communicate clearly, in oral or written form, the insights and conclusions resulting from personal and group exploration in any of the many possible areas related to children’s literature;
• be ready to undertake any individual research relevant to their future interests.
PROGRAMME
This programme is designed to be attractive to a wide range of students, including those who are interested in the subject in their capacities as librarians, teachers, counsellors, parents, or who are generally interested in working with children. The programme is not limited to the study of children’s books per se, but examines the relationship (both historical and ongoing) between children’s books and social constructions of childhood, and the place of children’s books (including stage/film/TV adaptations of books) in making culture. The programme covers a range of literary and cultural theories so that students are encouraged to read texts in a variety of ways and to identify significant patterns and structures within the narratives studied. The eclectic and rigorous nature of this programme means that students following it will be well prepared to take the opportunity it offers to contribute original work from a variety of perspectives in an expanding field.
Introduction
Thank you for enquiring about the MA/Graduate Diploma/Graduate Certificate in Children’s Literature at Roehampton. This introductory leaflet gives you important information which will enable you to decide if enrolling on one of our programmes is the right study option for you. The leaflet begins with a discussion of Children’s Literature by Dr. Pat Pinsent from the National Centre for Research in Children’s Literature (a Roehampton research center), moves on to an explanation of the structure of programmes and ends with a series of frequently asked questions. It will not answer all your questions, and you should not hesitate to contact us for further details, but we hope it provides enough information for you to make an informed choice about your studies.
What is Children’s Literature?
You may have thought, when deciding to take one of Roehampton’s Children’s Literature programmes, that you know what you meant by the term, ‘Children’s Literature’, but a little reflection soon shakes this kind of certitude.
What is a child?
There has been little agreement over past ages as to the limits of childhood, which in some cultures and periods may be seen as lasting until the age of majority but in others may effectively cease as soon as paid work commences, perhaps as young as five. Is the child merely a miniature version of the adult, prone to evil from early infancy, or is the innocent child straight from paradise, initially untouched by human evil? Is the child’s mind a blank tablet on which adults should inscribe all the knowledge and forms of behaviour which they consider to be appropriate to the proper way to live life? And where does childhood end today?

Clearly, what writers believe about childhood will very much influence all that they write for children, and the history of children’s literature evidences this from its rather uncertain beginnings. It has been suggested that even today, children’s literature is rarely, if ever, free from didacticism, for an audience without the knowledge and fixed ideas of the adult provides authors with an unmatched opportunity to influence their readers towards the ideas and behaviour which they consider appropriate. Novelists of ‘social realism’ (such as Melvyn Burgess, whose novel, Junk, won the Carnegie Prize in 1997) today certainly do not lack the intention of influencing their readers towards ‘right’ ideas about race, gender and behaviour, though their preconceptions, and their balance between instruction and entertainment, differ significantly from those in earlier periods.

Nor is it easy to discriminate between literature actually written for children, adult books which children have taken over, often in simplified versions, such as Defoe’s Robinson Crusoe and Swift’s Gulliver’s Travels, and books which seem to demand a more complex response than young people may be able to give, such as Mark Twain’s Huckleberry Finn or even Lewis Carroll’s Alice in Wonderland. Publishers and bookshops often reveal their uncertainty about marketing such books; books such as Richard Adams’ Watership Down and Salman Rushdie’s Haroun and the Sea of Stories have appeared on both children’s and adult’s lists (the children’s edition, though identical in text, is often cheaper than the adult’s!). A more recent example of this phenomenon is Joanne Rowling’s Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone. To enjoy a children’s book of the past, such as Lewis Carroll’s Alice in Wonderland or Kingsley’s The Water Babies, may require more understanding of the period in which it was written than most children today could bring to it, and its current readers may be largely adult.
What is literature?
Today, a further question which needs to be asked is concerning the definition of ‘literature’. Does this possibly elitist term have to be applied exclusively to quality material? If so, it may not always be easy to decide where quality lies, or who is to be the arbiter. The varied fortunes of Enid Blyton’s books at the hands of librarians of different periods are instructive here; from being regarded as highly educational, they fell to being excluded from libraries and classrooms as ‘rubbish’. It now looks as if they are being reinstated, as the realization of how important it is that children read means that those who insisted in the past on ‘quality’ material are more likely now to recommend books which ‘hook’ children on to reading.

What of non-fiction material such as comics, or non-fiction? What about poetry and drama for children? What of film, tapes, television, radio, interactive video and CD ROM? A definition of literature which excludes a large number of the ways in which children today are familiarized with story, notably the products of Disney, is surely too narrow.

After all these questions, you may be wondering what kind of material you will be studying on your programme!

While we are very interested from the philosophical point of view in questions about the nature of childhood and literature for children, we are prepared in most instances to accept a wide range of possible definitions of children’s literature. Essays which discuss problematic texts are very acceptable, though the discussion will need to take on board the fact that it is by no means axiomatic that everyone will agree about the boundaries of the subject.
Why study Children’s Literature?
Many people embarking even on Bachelor’s level study of Children’s Literature have been confronted with superior friends seeing ‘kiddy lit’; as an easy option, where all they have to do is read endless comics and books by Blyton and Dahl. I hope that the previous paragraph will have made you aware, if you were not already, that even (or especially) popular literature for children raises a number of questions the answers to which will require extensive knowledge of the social and educational conditionals prevailing in the period in which it was written.

It is in fact difficult to think of another discipline which makes so many demands on its students as far as knowledge of historical and socio-economic background, culture, religious belief, pedagogy and philosophy are concerned. To this add the usual pre-requisites for literary study, which today involve not only an understanding of the language and literature of the past, but also an awareness of critical perspectives such as Feminism, Marxism, Psycho-analysis, Structuralism, and, particularly in the case of children, an awareness of the complex factors related to the reader’s response to the text. This needs also to be set into a context relating to questions involving the roles of author, publisher, bookseller and librarian, parent and teacher, before we reach the actual ‘child’ for whom the product is intended.

I hope you have been stimulated, rather than discouraged, by the above presentation of the considerable number of disciplines involved in study at Masters level. Many of the issues presented will be directly tackled in the modules of the course, particularly in the initial module, Critical and Theoretical Perspectives. Although the kind of study involved here may be new to some students, the fact that the theories are explored within specific children’s texts, notably the perennially popular but ever changing genres of Fairy Tale and Animal Story, should make them more accessible. Many of the concerns listed are also explored in various ways throughout those modules which have more of a period basis, and the relation between text and picture is problematised in the Visual Texts course. The order in which the modules are presented has also been carefully considered: on a basis of theory and the consideration of what is meant by research, the chronological study of literature for children is pursued before the student is given the freer choice of subject and approach of individual study in the Research Enquiry and the Dissertation.

3 years full-time or 5 years part-time leading to a University of Wales honours degree.
This is the first course of its kind, developed in association with top children’s illustrators such as Tony Ross and Shoo Raynor and publishers such as Walker, Orchard & Puffin Books.
Students are able to specialise in illustration for the children’s market focusing on the special needs and demands of the industry. Special features include study trips to the World Book Fair for Children’s Books in Bologna, Children’s book research centres, industrial visits to London publishing houses and guest lectures from top children’s illustrators, art directors, authors and researchers.
MA Character and Narrative Design
For Children’s Publishing, Games, Animation and Comics
Further to the popular and successful B.A. “Illustration for Children’s Publishing”, NEWI are developing a masters programme building on the strengths of this course and others offered in the institution.
As well as strong links with the publishing industry the college also enjoys the attention of EA, who regularly recruit for their graduate programme directly from the college. The Childrens’ course has attracted a great deal of interest from publishing and has a reputation for giving its students a vocational advantage in the industry.
The focus of the MA will be visual storytelling in a multi-disciplinary context. We will study the elements common to animation, creative writing, picture book illustration and comics in order to discover what makes a good and memorable character work within a well structured and interesting story.
Characters and stories can be presented in myriad ways. Students will be expected to extend their own tastes and areas of expertise, and to experiment with unfamiliar media in order to identify core skills.
The course will have its own yearly publication, a hybrid between an academic journal and a children’s magazine. This will showcase student talent to a wide variety of art directors and commissioning editors alongside critical articles extending the debate around key issues. As well as being the embodiment of a strong ‘self publishing’, can-do ethos at the centre of the course.
The MA will run on a Wednesday, with this day entirely devoted to tutorials, lectures, visiting speakers, seminars and demonstrations. There is equal emphasis on the practical and theoretical exploration of ideas, attempting to synthesize the two.
The MA will run out of the Illustration department, but has the strong support and active involvement of programme leaders from Animation, and Multimedia design as well as utilising a well established creative writing course within Humanities.
Students will be expected to pursue their own individually negotiated projects. They will have the tutorial support of members of staff, and access to college facilities on the Wednesday. They will attend the taught day and be expected to spend one other day a week on their work. They will present their work to their peers each term.
The course is part time and will run over two years. We are looking to recruit for the Autumn of 2005.
Level 1 – Your focus initially will be on developing good drawing skills and exploring the needs of various media. Much of your work will be based on answering concept driven briefs and developing your individual style. You will also gain a background for picture book illustration through studying graphic design and how to extend character development through animation.
Critical Studies I
Introductory Subject Studies
Principles
Supporting Studies I
Ideas and Concepts
Media and Techniques

Level 2 – At this level you will gain an appreciation of the younger audience through studying child development, creative writing, the influence of the school curriculum and how to design with regard to the demands and constraints of the industry. You will be offered opportunities to visit schools in order to receive feedback on your work.
Critical Studies II
Professional Development
Extended Practice
Supporting Studies II
Communication & Media

Level 3 – You will be given extensive freedom to develop your own particular style and favoured techniques through vocationally relevant themes of work, which are negotiated and agreed with your tutors. You will also have the opportunity to enter national and international children’s book competitions. Some students extend their contact with schools in Level 3 through an artist in residence scheme.
Critical Studies III
Professional Practice
Negotiated Study I
Negotiated Study II
Why choose this course?
This Masters programme focuses on the development of your own individual practice starting with an initial proposal for study which the student provides. The structure will enable you to explore your own area of specialist interest whilst offering a wide range of creative opportunities to take your work into new fields. Our MA Programme has been developed in response to the recognition of the need for the provision of support for transition from undergraduate study to the establishment of professional practice within the field of Art & Design. The award will lead to a University of Wales Master’s Degree. The programme of study recognises that, in common with many academic areas of study, students who have successfully completed a first degree often need professional vocational training in order to enter and/or maintain a successful career trajectory in the world of professional practice.

In addition, the creativity and skills developed at a higher level of education contribute to developing an individual research framework within which a personal philosophy in relation to practice may be established.
On the MA Programme students will be provided with opportunities to:
• critically re-evaluate personal creative practice and study in an environment where there is a strong emphasis on personal reflection, critical practice and engagement with peers
• identify the context of their work within a contemporary framework and examine critically their views within both student-led and tutor-led seminars, and contribute to the debates within the subject area
• examine, identify and realise the potential for collaboration with other professionals within the contemporary arena, exploring any interdisciplinary research opportunities that arise consolidate their professional and business acumen and expand their career prospects
The MA Programme Team has expertise in professional practice, critical studies and practice-based research. Staff have proven track records in terms of research and are all experienced academics. For some, it may be a way to develop new areas by working closely on specific projects with identified partners. For others, it will provide opportunities to be more radical. The programme will also encourage the exploration of alternatives to existing genres.

Bachelor of Arts (Honours): Design: Illustration for graphic novels
This new and unique programme is much more than “comic book illustration”. It enables you to specialise within illustration in developing images and characters for graphic novels allowing you to gain practical experience and detailed knowledge and techniques appropriate to this area.
The degree is designed to encompass a broad range of creative skills, that are vocationally orientated and specifically orientated towards students’ needs for the knowledge, experience and techniques which will promote a confident approach to prospective employment as illustrators in the graphic novels industry, traditional and e-publishing, newspapers, magazines and related creative industries areas such as animation and film.
Through studying this degree you will understand how to write and convey stories and ideas through text and art; learn about character development; research stories and creative concepts and use a range of drawing techniques as methods of communication.

Graduate Institute of Children’s Literature

To elevate the level of academic research on children’s literature, this school opened Taiwan’s first graduate institute of children’s literature. The goals of this institute are to become a children’s literature research center and to be a driving force in the field of Chinese language children’s literature research. The future directions and focuses of this institute are as follows:
To collect and compile background information regarding children’s literature in Taiwan.
To build an online database of children’s literature.
To expand children’s library facilities.
To equally emphasize research and writing with theories applied to works or during editing.
To organize domestic and international academic symposiums to expand the study of children’s literature.
To carry out exchanges in the field of children’s literature across the Taiwan Strait.
To plan a curriculum for a Ph.D. program.
The curriculum includes both theory and practical training. In addition to research methods and independent study, the curriculum includes three parts: history, theory and literary style. Students are allowed to choose courses based on their research interest and are encouraged to explore their chosen topic in depth.
