Master's Degree in Books and Literature for Children and Young People


Access to written culture is essential in today's societies for the cultural development of all citizens. Many institutions dedicate their efforts to achieving this objective, and reading habits are currently promoted by the state and by private associations, in addition to the traditional task of promoting this habit amongst schools and libraries.

Books play a major role in the development of reading habits when children are growing. Familiarity with this type of literature is one of the requirements of professionals working towards the reading education of new generations, from the point of view of producing, liaising, reading promotion, studies and evaluation.

This master has become a standard of international quality thanks to the collaboration of institutions from different countries which have been working in this field for many years. The online format is the most practical way to encourage participation of the most recognised professionals in the field and to provide a common training ground for professionals from all parts of the world.
