Graduate Children's Literature Information Session

Date: Wednesday, April 2, 2014
Time: 5:30 PM
Location: Main College Building, Simmons College

The Center for the Study of Children's Literature (CSCL) at Simmons College administers the nation's first Master of Arts in Children's Literature as well as a Master of Fine Arts (M.F.A.) in Writing for Children. 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.

All Information Sessions are held at the Simmons College campus, 300 The Fenway in Boston, MA, unless otherwise indicated. Once you register, you will receive an email confirmation with directions to campus and the appropriate building. You may also RSVP by calling 617-521-2915 or emailing gsa@simmons.edu.
