New curriculums for degree programs

The Philippine Commission on Higher Education (CHED) has put on its website the revised curriculums of degree programs. The key words in this official issuance are “sample” and “suggested.” CHED is clear that it is not violating the Constitutional provision on academic freedom for Higher Education Institutions (HEIs). HEIs can use the sample or suggested curriculums to guide them in revising their current (or in proposing new) degree programs.
