usage of "curriculum"

0

If curriculum already implies academic, is it redundant to say I have equipped myself with a diverse academic curriculum? Also, is curriculum plural (is "a curriculum" appropriate)?

"is it redundant to say I have equipped myself with a diverse academic curriculum?" - rather than redundant, I would say it was poor English. – Baracus – 2018-01-06T20:50:45.097

Curriculum doesn't imply the academic. Curriculum refers to courses and subjects that are taught in academic institutions.

Academic curriculum is a correct phrase that means a curriculum relating to academic. However, it's advised to not use that phrase since it hasn't found its way on Ngram

Curriculum is singular and a curriculum is appropriate. The plural form for curriculum is curriculums

1Note that curriculum has two accepted plural forms, like many Latin-derived nouns. Both curriculums and curricula are acceptable and common. – PMV – 2016-12-30T23:42:45.203

1"Relating to academic" doesn't sound to me like something a native English speaker would say. Nor does "It's advised to not use". – Colin Fine – 2017-03-01T18:47:52.437
