Children's literature is recognised as a remarkable and dynamic part of literary and social culture. This course, the first full-time one year taught Masters programme in an Irish university, offers graduates in English or related disciplines the opportunity to study a broad range of children's literature in English. It addresses chronologies, genres, modes of criticism, publishing trends and the full apparatus of literary investigation across four centuries, while addressing the unique power dynamics that arise from adult authors writing for child readers. It is particularly concerned with multidisciplinary study because of the unique integration of words and images through the medium of picture books and graphic novels, and because its readership is more likely than any other to be 'technological natives' to have grown up taking multimedia approaches to texts for granted. Complete in itself, the course may also serve as preparation for those intending to proceed to further research in the field. Unique opportunities exist to work with the Pollard Collection, the bequest of more than 10,000 children's books left to the College by Mary 'Paul' Pollard, one time keeper of Early Printed Books, in 2005.

Course Content:

There are three elements:

i) Perspectives and case studies in children's literature (core module),

ii) Optional modules:
The child and Victorian literature,
Tolkien: books for children and children's literature,
Historical novels,
Young Adult fiction,
'Be Merry and Wise': the rise of children's literature.

Students choose one optional module in Michaelmas term and a second in Hilary term. Some of the options are shared with the MPhil in Popular Literature.

iii) Dissertation

Assessment is through four 5,000-7,000 word essays and a 15,000 word dissertation.

The aims of the course are to provide qualified speech and language therapists with opportunities to advance their academic knowledge and professional practice skills with specific clinical populations. These courses provide additional specialist qualifications to qualified speech and language therapists and do not serve as initial qualifications to practise as a speech and language therapist. The two year part time M.Sc. course takes place during twelve 5-day weeks spread over a 2 year period. There is an opportunity for students taking the Dysphagia specialist strand to do a one-year full time course. This course takes place during twelve 5-day weeks spread over one year. All students must attend Trinity College for these teaching weeks. Additional assignments and clinical work must be completed outside of these weeks. . During the M.Sc. course, students must complete a minimum of 80 hours clinical work in the chosen specialist area. Students who take the dysphagia specialist strand and who have not completed a qualifying course in dysphagia will have to complete an additional intensive week of study. These students must have at least 40 of the required 80 clinical hours supervised by speech and language therapists recognised by the Department. Students should organise their own clinical work prior to commencing the course but must ensure that, where supervision is required, proposed supervisors have been agreed with the department. For the part time M.Sc course, core and specialist modules are taught during Year 1; research project and dissertation are the main focus in Year 2. For full time students core modules and a dissertation are completed in one year. Classes are timetabled to facilitate clinicians in employment and overseas students.
