In the 1990s, All Hallows completed a successful transition to third-level college. Dublin City University became the awarding body for the increasing range of full- and part-time undergraduate and postgraduate programmes. In 2008 All Hallows became a linked college of DCU. The college also established links with sister Vincentian universities De Paul, Chicago, St John’s, NY and Niagara, NY in the USA.
All Hallows offered postgraduate programmes on Non-Profit Management, Leadership and Pastoral Care, Social Justice, Spirituality, Supervisory Practice, Ecology and Religion as well as research degree options.
Undergraduate degree courses in Theology, Philosophy, Psychology and English Literature all included work placements, often with organisations in the community and voluntary sector.
A School of Adult and Community Learning was established. This empowered students with the skills to promote fairness and equality in society. A new Adult Learning BA for Personal and Professional Development brought second-chance learners back to education.
Over 3,400 students graduated from BA, MA and PhD programmes up to 2016.
