This research addresses the requirements of the new educational model. It is an analysis of the contents of the curriculum of the higher level of the Universidad Autónoma de Guerrero (UAGro), located in Acapulco, Gro., Mexico. The qualities or criteria that were used for the analysis of the variables were the link with environmental education, justification, research on environmental issues, environmental scientific content, as well as specific environmental terminology. The results obtained showed that there are four learning units (Chemistry I, II, III; Biology I, II; Geography, and Ecology) that present environmental issues with greater depth and related in their contents with sustainability. The subject with the least environmental connection to the contents of the subjects is Chemistry, with only 3.12%; followed by the subject of Biology, with a percentage of 12.5% ​​linked to environmental issues and environmental education; Geography with a percentage of 40.62%, and finally the subject with the most environmental content and environmental education is Ecology, with a percentage of 62.5%. According to the above-mentioned analysis, the programs of the upper secondary level must be revised and redesigned in such a way that they address in a comprehensive manner the current educational needs.
