Course content

The Graduate Certificate in Sexuality and Sexual Health Education is a unique programme offering specialist educational training in the area of sexuality and sexual health. It will reflect issues relating to all sexualities in Irish, European and global contexts. In constructing this programme a professional collaborative partnership between the DCU School of Nursing and Human Sciences and the Irish Family Planning Association (IFPA) was developed.

The programme aims to create and develop competent sexuality and sexual health educators which will enable those they work with to make healthy decisions, regardless of their position in the life span.
