Our aim is to promote social justice both locally and globally, using interdisciplinary, feminist and egalitarian approaches to learning.
Postgraduate programmes in Equality Studies and Women's Studies, Undergraduate modules in the UCD Horizons programme, Outreach and Continuing Professional Development programmes in Equality Studies and Women's Studies, a dynamic, interdisciplinary research programme.
We also host UCD’s Egalitarian World Initiative, a network of over 100 scholars from across the university who are working on social justice issues.
Our interdisciplinary programmes cover a wide range of equality, feminist, human rights and global justice issues. Our programmes are flexible. To facilitate part-time students, many classes are offered in the evening. There are progression routes from one qualification to the next. Our graduates can be found working in every sector. They include government ministers, community activists, home carers, educators, artists, health care professionals, farmers, police, civil servants and journalists
