(plural curricula) – The set of courses, and their content, offered at a school. In formal education, a curriculum is the set of courses, course work, and content offered at a school. The curriculum may be partly or entirely determined by an external, authoritative body (i.e. the National Curriculum for England). In the U.S., each state, with the individual school districts, establishes the curricula taught. In Australia each state’s Education Department establishes curricula.
