Newcastle is a major centre for research in political philosophy. The work of its political philosophers tackles many of the most important issues in the subject, both contemporary and historical. Our students and researchers are based in the School of Geography, Politics and Sociology.Â We provide high quality facilities for all of our postgraduate research students, including:Â their own (free) laptop; dedicated desk space; and financial support for conferences and field trips.
For 2013 entry, we will be awarding at least one studentship in Political Philosophy through the AHRC’s Doctoral Awards scheme. This scheme provides studentships to enable students to undertake and complete a doctoral degree (PhD).Â
