Congratulations to Dr Carol Baumann, School of Education, recently conferred with her PhD in Education at the NUI Galway November graduation ceremony.

Carol’s PhD, titled: “Dominant discourse and prevailing practice: positioning financial education within education”, centred on a foundational, philosophical consideration and analysis of the idea of financial education. 

Employing ideology critique methodology, the research examined this underdeveloped area in the Irish educational context, seeking to inform the conceptualisation and design of financial education, one that foregrounds the needs of the individual citizen.  Carol’s research was supervised by Dr Tony Hall, School of Education.
