Model Curriculum

The model curriculum (MCs) listed on the table below were accepted by the Model Curriculum Workgroup (MCW). It should be noted that these MCs fall outside of SB 1440/440 and are not subject to the limits and mandates associated with such legislation. As a result, MCs will not obligate colleges to develop MC-aligned degrees or certificates. Each college may determine if the model curriculum is appropriate for their program and students.

For more information regarding model curriculum please see our model curriculum FAQ document.
