Graduate Children's Literature at The Carle

Date: Sunday, February 2, 2014
Time: 12:00 pm
Location: The Eric Carle Museum of Picture Book Art, 125 West Bay Rd, Amherst, MA

In collaboration with The Eric Carle Museum of Picture Book Art in 2008, The Center for the Study of Children's Literature (CSCL) at Simmons College now offers all four graduate programs in Children's Literature onsite at The Carle. This includes our M.A. in Children's Literature, M.F.A. in Writing for Children, M.A. in Children's Literature/M.F.A dual degree, and M.A. in Children's Literature/M.S. in Library Science dual degree offered in collaboration with Simmons's Graduate School of Library Science program at Mount Holyoke.

The CSCL provides a rigorous, disciplined study of children's books for those who are — or who intend to be - involved in library services, publishing, writing, teaching or related fields. To develop a critical vocabulary essential for appraising text and illustration, students apply a high level of scholarly analysis to children's literature ranging from folklore and mythology to contemporary realistic fiction and nonfiction. With an emphasis on historical and critical analysis - including feminist, ideological, and multicultural perspectives - our interdisciplinary curriculum draws upon art, history, education, sociology, psychology and media studies.
