Course Summary

This unique, two-year degree provides an interdisciplinary study of the interaction between children, texts and media, along with the opportunity to study and live in at least two European countries. You will be able to engage with an array of cultural events related to children’s literature and media, and participate in a placement with a practitioner organisation.

WHY THIS PROGRAMME

  • This is a unique programme that draws on the recognised strengths of the consortium partners to offer a joint degree that engages in children’s literature, media and culture.
  • Glasgow is the leading partner in the consortium of universities that have developed this programme. The other universities are Aarhus University, Tilburg University, the Autonomous University of Barcelona and the University of Wroclaw.
  • Rather than focus either on the literary, media or educational aspects on their own, the programme looks at the interaction between them in a flexible framework that allows for the incorporation of constantly changing format (e.g. digital technologies that affect reading and viewing) and input into creative initiatives around literature and learning.
  • The programme includes the study of a wide variety of genres and considers new developments in the production of texts and media for children, including multimodal forms and digital technologies.
  • You will receive a theoretical grounding in children’s literature and media as well as the opportunity to complete bespoke placements.
  • You will be supported by a friendly, internationally acclaimed team of scholars who work in both the arts and humanities and the social sciences.
  • You will have access to world class libraries, teaching and research facilities, as well as museums and other cultural organisations.

CAREER PROSPECTS

Graduates will develop key skills sought by many employers, including the ability to find, select and analyse texts and empirical data; confident and persuasive oral and written communication skills; and problem solving through creative and critical thinking. The programme provides excellent preparation for careers in media, education and literacy, publishing, archive and information studies, heritage and creative industries, as well as a springboard for PhD study and an academic career.
