The Doctorate in Higher and Adult Education (DHAE) brings together practitioners with substantial experience in the design, implementation and delivery across a wide range of higher and adult education contexts.

The programme supports educational practitioners to develop research capacities to the highest level.  It fosters research on professional practice in support of transformative learning, critical thinking and democratic education.  Successful applicants will have an interest in exploring innovative and critical education research that can inform practice across a range of disciplines.

The course is structured and supervised in a way that allows practitioners to position their research in education research and academic fields, and to develop their doctoral research project incrementally.  Department staff have extensive experience in supporting doctoral research through individual and group supervision, where peer learning and support is also is a central element.  By working together, exchanging ideas and supporting each other, students form learning communities which are collaborative and creative.

The Department of Adult and Community Education is firmly committed to equality and social justice.  We believe that education is a fundamental human right and collaborative, critical adult education has the power to transform individuals and change society for the better.  We have an outstanding track record in supporting postgraduate research programmes and have established the leading centre for research on adult education in Ireland, building an excellent international reputation for our work on higher and adult education.
