Programme Overview

This interdisciplinary postgraduate programme is designed to meet the personal and professional needs of Home Economics graduates. Providing the first postgraduate qualification in Home Economics in Ireland, this programme aims to provide a continuum of learning in Home Economics. An approach aimed at providing practitioners with an enriched and extended repertoire of knowledge and skills for critical reflection, individual empowerment and evidence-based practice thus enabling them to be dispositionally and cognitively competent to act as "adaptive experts" in their work contexts.
This constructivist approach gives primacy to Home Economics as a discipline for individual empowerment and self-efficacy with an ever-increasing expectation from educationalists for Home Economists to demonstrate leadership roles in organisational, community and national initiatives. To be advocates for the enhancement of quality of life for families and communities requires working effectively in the present and also working collectively to create the future. To be strong advocates for pro-active, meaningful change as Home Economics professionals, we need to promote what we do well and drive these initiatives forward through innovative and creative approaches.

The programme is modular in design.
