International PhD in Contemporary Humanism

Australian Catholic University (ACU), in partnership with Lumsa Università, Pontificia Universidad Católica de Chile (PUC) and Institut Catholique de Paris (ICP) are seeking to appoint one outstanding candidate to the International PhD in Contemporary Humanism.

Main Goals of the Programme

The PhD programme aims to develop knowledge and critical skills in reading and interpreting the historical, cultural, literary, philosophical and educational tradition in its making and in its effects on the present, from the point of view of the category of “humanism”. The international and interdisciplinary structure of the PhD programme aims to provide an adequate context not only for an integrated “humanistic approach”, but also for an integral education of students through a contamination of styles and methods of research and teaching, beyond disciplinary and national boundaries.

In addition to the development of specific scientific and methodological competences calibrated on each curriculum, common goals of the PhD programme are the consolidation and improvement of:

  • language skills in an international context;
  • public speaking skills;
  • writing skills at academic level;
  • skills in design and management in a high-level cultural environment.

Applications are now open - closing date 17th Oct 2017
