Description:
Recognizing the number of adults concerned with sharing a rich literary heritage with young people and dedicated to more effectively eliciting refined responses to literature, the Center for the Study of Children’s Literature at Simmons College 0ffers the nation’s first Master of Arts in Children’s Literature. This 36 credit program engages students in a rigorous and disciplined academic study of children’s literature, providing specialized study to those who are, or intend to be, involved in academia, library services, editing, publishing, or affiliated fields. The curriculum emphasizes historical and critical analysis, including feminist, ideology, and multicultural perspectives, with interdisciplinary coursework drawing upon art, history, education, sociology, psychology, and media studies. A candidate for the degree can elect to write a thesis or a project as a part of an independent tutorial during the final semester. The thesis can be a monograph, an essay, or a bibliographic compilation and should have a scholarly orientation. The project can be in a wide range of practical areas, such as literature education, publishing internships, or other projects that apply the degree to professional fields and can be used as a model for others. A student must take two courses in general literature if he/she does not have substantial undergraduate coursework in literature. Upon completion of the degree program, graduates will be able to demonstrate the confidence that comes with a general acquaintance with literature, as well as experience in children’s literature. Admission requires a baccalaureate degree preferably with a major in English and American and/or comparative literature from an accredited institution. However, the program is also open to students with majors in elementary or secondary education, fine arts, or social sciences who have done substantial work in English.

The Administrator of Special Education program and Supervisor/Director program at Simmons College prepare educators for Massachusetts licensure as an administrator of special education or supervisor/director. The administrator of special education course sequence is designed to prepare graduate students who will provide leadership to educators and staff working with learners in inclusive classrooms. This program offers students the opportunity to reflect on their classrooms and methodologies within a unique cohort structure. Each cohort includes between 15 and 18 students who work with Simmons faculty to build the kind of fair and effective community that they wish to create in their own schools. This model provides a safe environment to discuss challenges, gain inspiration and support, and share special education best practice strategies. The cohort is also a valuable resource - it becomes a strong, collegial network that continues to offer personal and professional support beyond graduation. Students may pursue a Master of Science in Education (M.S.Ed.) or an Educational Specialist degree (Ed.S.), an advanced degree that provides students who currently hold a master’s degree in an area of educational specialization. The program features an integrated, practical curriculum with an emphasis on providing the unique administrative expertise to educators and staff working with learners with special needs. Coursework develops instructional and administrative leadership skills, with seminars and critical projects that address topics such as budgeting, demographics, program review, staff development, laws and regulations, conflict management, and specific issues in special education. Each program of study is individually designed in consultation with the program coordinator and can be completed on a full-time or a part-time basis. Courses are offered on weeknights, weekends, and occasionally as one week sessions. Students also may pursue a non-licensure track.

Description:
This dual degree program offers a unique opportunity for students interested in the synthesis and comparison of two unique approaches to children's literature to combine their applied work (M.A. in Children's Literature) with their professional credentials (M.S. in Library Services). As children’s literature has re-entered mainstream discussions of both adult’s and young people’s reading, librarians, teachers, booksellers, writers, illustrators, and publishers are increasingly interested in critical and pragmatic discussions of this diverse and growing body of texts. The Center for the Study of Children’s Literature at Simmons has administered a Master of Arts in Children’s Literature for thirty years. The first of it's kind, the M.A. in Children's Literature studies historical, critical, and theoretical contexts in works produced for children and young adults. The Graduate School of Library and Information Science offers specialized literature and services courses to those students interested in increasing their familiarity with these materials with an eye towards professional youth services in libraries. While both graduate degree programs reference the same literary history and body of material, each is characterized by distinct perspectives and methodologies.

Degree(s):
M.A.-Children's Literature; M.S.-Library Science

Description:
The Master of Arts in English program provides a strong foundation in English, American, and comparative literature and in literary theory and analysis. This versatile program includes a broad offering of courses, personalized plans of study, and an opportunity to take courses in writing or writing instruction. Students may design a program of study that combines the traditional and the cutting edge, with course topics ranging from Shakespeare, Chaucer, and classic American writers to postcolonial fiction, the post modern novel, and feminist theory. The Simmons English program attracts men and women who wish to teach, as well as those who plan to pursue a Ph.D. or a profession that requires a strong foundation in writing or in the critical analysis of literature. Students enjoy a collegial relationship with faculty who are award-winning poets and playwrights, authors, reviewers, and nationally known scholars. Faculty areas of interest span historical periods, genres, and cultures, including the Bible, Romantic poetry, Native American studies, Victorian literature, children’s literature, film theory, ethnic literature, and writing pedagogy. The 32-credit English program is individually prescribed; the student is permitted to take certain courses in subjects closely adjacent to English provided these courses are directly relevant to a coherent plan of graduate work. Each student entering the program is required to take ENGL 405, Contemporary Critical Theory, unless he/she has had the equivalent. The department advises one course in medieval or Renaissance literature unless the student has already successfully completed such a course. A master’s thesis is optional; students may elect to write a thesis as one of their courses. The remainder of the program is elected from courses best adapted to the student’s needs and interests as determined in consultation with the program director.

Degree(s):
M.A.-English
