Literacy Studies Concentration
Specialization in Children’s and Young Adult Literature
The doctoral specialization in children’s and young adult literature is designed for students to explore the history and evolution of the genres—including past and current trends; reader engagement; theories about reading and literacy development; reading pedagogies; and literary criticism.
Individuals seeking admission to the Doctor of Philosophy degree in Education must first be admissible to the University of Tennessee Knoxville, and then admitted to a concentration within the PhD. Prospective students are encouraged to make application at least six months before anticipated matriculation.
The residency requirement for students in the PhD program with a major in education is two consecutive semesters of full-time enrollment.
