The international Master’s degree programme in Children’s Literature, Media & Culture (CLMC) is aimed at students who wish to pursue a career in the areas of children’s literature, media, and education across a broad range of professional fields. 


The jointly developed and implemented programme will provide you with academic knowledge and research skills and develop your practical employability. The programme will build on your interests and experiences related to children’s and young adult literature, media, and culture to deepen your knowledge of the expanding intersection between literature studies, media studies, childhood studies, and education from an international perspective. The programme is also intended as preparation for PhD study.


The degree programme is located at universities in at least three European countries, including two obligatory semesters at the University of Glasgow and Aarhus University. Your teachers will be international experts from strong research communities within the field. They will provide a theoretical and analytical grounding that includes historical, literary, educational, and media-related frameworks for the study of children’s literature and media. As Erasmus Mundus programmes accept students from all over the world, you will be studying with a highly dedicated and talented international group of students.


With a Master’s degree in Children’s Literature, Media and Culture, you will gain deep insight into all aspects of media and texts surrounding children and young adults today. Your knowledge of both the distinctive features of texts and media for children and young adults and the contexts in which they come into play paves the way for a career related to production and outreach/teaching within the field. The international network that you establish through the programme will allow you to pursue a career abroad. You will also be able to work in research within the field and apply for admission to the PhD programme at Aarhus University.

Programme Structure

As a CLMC student, you will be part of an integrated, international, and coherent degree programme focusing on the history as well as literary and media theory of children’s and young adult literature and on critical methodologies for evaluating and critiquing the corpus of children’s and young adult literature and media texts. You will examine the interaction between children, young adults and adults in the production and consumption of multimodal texts. You will learn to promote and develop cultural sensitivity through the analysis of multicultural texts, media, and artefacts, as well as through academic dialogue among a broad international cohort of students. Furthermore, you will increase your critical understanding of contested concepts, theories, and debates about the promotion, role, and users of literary, media, and digital texts in professional and community contexts, including understanding the global market of books, media, and related artefacts for children.
