Curriculum Development

Initial Considerations

The development and implementation of sound curriculum takes approximately one academic year. The AP&P Committee calculates that the initial development of curriculum proposals, prior to submitting the actually proposal, usually takes between 8-10 weeks, and sometimes even more. Thus, initiators are encouraged to start their work a semester ahead of their proposed time frame for presenting a COMPLETE curriculum proposal to the AP&P Committee.

The quality and integrity of curriculum are first and foremost. New curriculum proposals must:

  • be compatible with the philosophy and mission of the college
  • respond to or reflect community or student needs
  • have available resources
  • meet curriculum standards

What is CurricUNET?  CurricUNET is a Web-based software application that automates the development and review of curriculum through an automatic workflow system. The system creates a searchable database of both current and archived course and program outlines. Effective fall 2014, all curriculum proposals are launched in the college's CurricUNET workflow system for review by the Academic Policy and Planning (AP&P) committee.  Click her to access CurricUNET Meta

"I truly enjoyed all instructors in my Early Childhood Studies classes. My instructors have experience in the field and shared it with us to give us the real picture. The opportunity to do the lab hours at the school's childcare center was a bonus."
