DIAZ-BARRIGA ARCEO, Frida; LOPEZ-RAMIREZ, José-Luis  and  LOPEZ-BANDA, Edmundo-Antonio. Personal learning trajectories and flexible curriculum: the university psychology students' perspective. Rev. iberoam. educ. super [online]. 2020, vol.11, n.30, pp.3-21.  Epub June 15, 2020. ISSN 2007-2872.

The objective of the study is to reveal the process of constructing personal learning trajectories and the student's perspective regarding the flexible curriculum. A phenomenological qualitative methodology was used and 20 students and graduates of a degree in psychology were interviewed. The results show that the students are inclined towards a flexible curriculum that allows them to pre-specialize according to their interests in different fields of intervention and disciplinary paradigms they have chosen. They reject pre-established and obligatory trajectories that, from their perspective, disrupt their career plan.

Keywords : curriculum flexibility; personal learning trajectories; curriculum actors; university students; psychology teaching; Mexico.
