Announcement of PhD Course in Education Science for Teacher Education at Kyambogo University

PHUV9100 Philosophy of Science, Research Methodologies and Ethics
Philosophy of Science, Research Methodology and Ethics (10 ECTS credits) is a core course in the training component of the PhD Programme in Educational Sciences for Teacher Education. During the learning process, candidates will strengthen their knowledge base for working on general epistemological, methodological, and ethical issues as well as for conducting research in the field of educational sciences for teacher education. The breadth and diversity of the course shall enable candidates to acquire a general theoretical overview of methodological approaches. Comparative perspectives represent a key element in this course. The ability to see connections between theoretical orientation and relevant choice of practical approach will be developed through methodological and ethical reflection. While the theoretical element is essentially knowledge oriented, the methodological element is more skill- and development-oriented. The ethical element will to a certain degree be attitude-oriented.
The course may be replaced by one or more PhD courses at HiOA or at another educational institution or research school.
Although this course is primarily aimed at PhD candidates admitted to the PhD programme, it is also open to other applicants. The admission requirement is a five-year master's degree (three years + two years) or equivalent qualification in teacher education or other qualification in teacher education, educational science or development studies.
