Education, learning, and knowledge are widely recognised as the prime drivers in our rapidly changing world of global mobility. They are also the processes that build equal opportunity, economic development, and citizenship – in the North as well as the South. The MA in Anthropology of Education and Globalisation at Aarhus University is unique in offering an in-depth understanding of the ways in which education, learning, and knowledge are negotiated and managed in everyday life in different contexts – across national and cultural boundaries.   

The international Master’s degree programme in Children’s Literature, Media and Culture (CLMC) is aimed at students who wish to pursue a career in the areas of children’s literature, media and education across a broad range of professional fields. It is also intended as preparation for PhD study. The jointly developed and implemented programme will provide you with academic knowledge and research skills and develop your practical employability. The programme will build on your interests and experiences related to children’s and young adult literature, media and culture in order to deepen your knowledge of the expanding intersection between literature studies, media studies, childhood studies and education from an international perspective
