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 teaching, library services, publishing, writing, 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.
