PhD in Education and Social Justice
The Department of Educational Research at Lancaster University is launching a new online PhD – by coursework and thesis – in Education and Social Justice. It’s a part-time programme undertaken entirely online, over 4 years. The programme is designed to enable experienced professionals worldwide to focus on, and research, social justice issues that are at the heart of their own professional practice and concerns.
It will be of benefit to a wide range of people including: teachers working in schools, further education, higher education, and lifelong learning; policy makers; managers; researchers working with social justice issues; youth workers; activists and advocacy workers; people with equity or social justice portfolios in a variety of institutions; education support personnel; consultants; researchers and workers in charities and NGOs; and civil servants.
The PhD in Education and Social Justice is a new addition to the Department’s established and successful suite of doctoral programmes, one of which has been running since 1995.
Applications are now invited to join the first cohort of students who will commence the programme in autumn 2013.
