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 Jan 6 '18 at 20:50

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

    Note that curriculum has two accepted plural forms, like many Latin-derived nouns. Both curriculums and curricula are acceptable and common. – PMV Dec 30 '16 at 23:42

    "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 Mar 1 '17 at 18:47
