Welcome

The Home Economics Department is the community of staff and students in the various disciplines of Home Economics and Science. The Department has a proud tradition of providing a world-renowned course in Home Economics teacher education and we remain the sole provider for Home Economics teacher education in Ireland.

Graduates of the undergraduate and postgraduate programmes bear testament to the high standard of professionalism aspired to by the Department and are employed in a variety of settings and locations.

Our vision is to be recognised leaders in higher education that excels in effective teaching, active learning, scholarly research and responsible engagement with the local community as well as the national and global communities of which we are all part. Educating learners to be morally and ethically responsible leaders, who think critically, act wisely and work skilfully with the entreaty to “make a difference”.
