The Children's Literature and Young Adult Literature course at DCU Drumcondra concentrates on the art and the politics of children's literature, and students read widely amongst both established and popular fiction and poetry for children in their first year of study.
They also examine visual narratives, Irish literature in English for young people, and provocative contemporary teenage fiction. In the second year, then, they concentrate on a specific area of research and, with guided supervision, write their dissertation.
