Profile Description

The University of Chichester has two Full Bursaries for PhD study for 3 years available in the area of Theology, Philosophy and Religious Studies. Applications will be accepted from candidates in the areas indicated below. In addition two part-time Fees only Bursaries are available in the field of public and practical theology.

Full bursary 1: Values and virtues in school, in community and home

This project will examine to what extent tensions exist between the values and virtues espoused in school, and those in the local community and home. The first stage of the project will identify and analyse dominant values and virtues in the school context. The second stage seeks to ask the same questions of the non-school context of pupils exploring the values and virtues promoted in the local community. The researcher will draw upon methodologies developed in public and practical theology to identify significant ethical identities.

Full bursary 2: Critical Citizenship and Pedagogy

This project explores pedagogical method in undergraduate philosophy and its implications for developing critical citizenship. Critical citizenship, understood as an active, engaged and questioning relationship to contemporary social and political issues, seems like a natural outcome of studying philosophy. The gap, between the study of critical thought and the development of critical thought is the central focus of this research project. What techniques and practices best facilitate the formation of critical citizens? The research will offer both qualitative and quantitative analyses of current undergraduate pedagogical methods across the HE sector, examining these practices in light of the learning outcomes of philosophy degree programmes.
