This concentration focuses on children’s & young adult literature and the ways they work within society. We look at themes, issues and genres. We have even created a course on teaching children’s and young adult literature. This newest concentration and its related courses went into effect in the Fall semester 2020.

ENGL 212 or 213, ENGL 318, 319, and 406, and 6 hours from ENGL 318*, 319*, 325**, 326, 340**, 430**, 440**, or 476**.
*These courses may be repeated for up to six credit hours when course content differs.
**These courses may count toward the concentration when the themes are relevant to Children’s and Young Adult Literature.
