Are you interested in learning how to create and transform school libraries into learning environments offering all types of resources and services? Do you want to discover how reading programmes are designed and implemented in the centres? Would you like to select and recommend literature in all types of forms and formats to children and teens? Do you want to develop social projects that can have an effect on the reading habits of citizens?
If you form part of the professional group of primary and secondary school teachers, librarians and information specialists, mediators and cultural promoters, or leisure activity monitors, cultural managers and publishing house professionals, this master's degree is for you!
Why choose it?
Because It is the only official master's degree of its kind in Catalonia and Spain, and is officially recognised by the Ministry for Education for its teaching profile of "School Library and Reading".
The subjects, offered by lecturers specialised this field from different departments of the UAB and the UB, combine online activities with classroom-based lectures which include renowned professionals, visits to centres and cultural outings.
This Master's degree will provide you with the training needed to direct a school library or the children's section of a public library, work in resource centres or as a social and cultural entertainer, in publishing houses and as a qualified professional in assessing educational syllabi in public administration posts or in other social initiatives related to the promotion of reading among society.
The master's degree was [...] a fantastic training experience, since I acquired new knowledge about the articulation and dynamization of a school library, aspects that I have been able to apply in the classroom, despite not being a school librarian. It has also helped me to delve into the field of promoting reading.Lara Reyes
I finish my Master with a more critical look at my work and want to continue stretching the bare strands in the different modules. Marc Alabart
The master's degree was, for me, a perfect opportunity to integrate, with all its complexity and depth, an essential and very powerful model of school library when it comes to building a freer, more critical, more creative society. A model that I integrated thanks to the crossing of knowledge, experiences and perspectives of the library and educational sectors.Marta Roig
I crossed the Atlantic in search of tools to build my new school library and came back with a suitcase full of ideas and friends.Giovanna Araya
