The study of curriculum, beginning in the early 20th century, first served the areas of school administration and teaching and was used to design and develop programs of study.

Curriculum studies now embraces an array of academic scholarship in relation to personal and institutional needs and interests while it also focuses upon a diverse and complex dynamic among educational experiences, practices, settings, actions, and theories.The Encyclopedia of Curriculum Studies serves as an introduction and general education supplementing and assisting those newcomers who wish to understand the professional and specialized knowledge component of curriculum studies and to enter into the dialogue.
