About Curriculum Studies
Post-graduate programmes (Honours, Masters and PhD) in Curriculum Studies aim to engage students in debates, critical discussions, policies, theories, reflection and reflexive practices, and research in the field. The programme is beneficial for people who are teachers in schools, TVET colleges, higher education, and community colleges.
