Gilmorehill Campus

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.
