In the name of God
In our country, the increase of universities and higher education centers has caused the attention of planners and higher education specialists to the issue of curricula which based that can be provided a suitable framework for teaching and learning of students. In today’s higher educational system, attention to curricula goes beyond providing objectives, headlines, content, and teaching methods. This has increased the need for curriculum studies. The establishment of the field of curriculum studies in Iran has a history of thirty years and since the establishment of IACS have passed twenty years. This field is active in most governmental and non-governmental universities. In twenty universities of the country, students are studying in master and doctoral courses of curriculum studies. These statistics show the quantitative and qualitative growth and progress of this field in recent years.
