Literature is food for the mind, while Children’s Literature nourishes future generations and future leaders.

The major has all the hallmarks of the best in cross-disciplinary courses: the exploration of ideas and the opportunity to put them into practice. The major is specifically designed to enable its graduates to pursue a range of career pathways that are vital to the health and well-being of the community. A Major in Children’s Literature will equip graduates for a variety of employment opportunities in, for example, the fields of Psychology, Writing and Education, including Teacher Librarianship.
