Curriculum Studies includes, but is not limited to investigations into: teacher education, the social construction or knowledge, curriculum and instructional discourses, and the role of curriculum and curricular reform in K–12 and other learning environments. Students learn about issues of planning and development, program implementation and evaluation, and pre-service teacher education. Inquiry in the field is multidisciplinary and includes numerous perspectives and orientations such as: cultural studies, historical consciousness, post structuralism, feminism, multicultural education, semiotics, and critical theory. International faculty and graduate students interested in curriculum theory are actively involved in the Centre for the Study of the Internationalization of Curriculum Studies .
The Department of Curriculum and Pedagogy offers PhD, MA and MEd specializations in Curriculum Studies, Curriculum and Leadership, and a Diploma in Curriculum Studies.
