Interdisciplinary Minor in Children’s Literature and Childhood Studies

The Minor in Children’s Literature and Childhood Studies (CLCS) provides students with an opportunity to study children’s literature within the context of the interdisciplinary field of childhood studies. The minor recognizes that children’s literature is intrinsically linked to other disciplines that focus on particular aspects of childhood. Students also select courses pertaining to such child-related topics as language acquisition, child psychology, education, juvenile law, pediatric nursing, and the history and culture of childhood.

Along with two non-literature courses, students in the minor are introduced to British, American, and Anglophone literature for young people, emphasizing historical context, diversity, language, media studies, iconography, childhood studies, creative writing, and the digital humanities.

Check the university catalog for more information on the Children's Literature and Childhood Studies Minor requirements.
