The Philosophy of Education at The University of Winchester provides opportunities to think philosophically and critically about educational policy and practice in relation to a wider socioeconomic and political analysis. You learn to demonstrate advanced skills in critically engaging with educational literature and research, and to develop key transferable skills, including the capacity to manage projects, to communicate complex ideas to others with clarity, and to make effective decisions independently and with others, in preparation for equipping you for progression in graduate employment or for further advanced study.
You evaluate the contributions of theorists and educationalists, consider case studies drawn from empirical research, and delve into the rich tapestry of your own experiences to reflect critically upon educational issues, policy and practice. You study modules including Introducing Philosophy of Education, Pedagogical Ethics, Education and Social Justice, Aesthetics and Education.
