Dissertation/Thesis Abstract

Examination of Implicit Curriculum of the United States Air Force Academy
by Aiman, Madison Elizabeth, M.Ed., Minot State University, 2020, 66; 28088213
Abstract (Summary)

The purpose of this study was to investigate the function and extent of the implicit curriculum at the United States Air Force Academy. This study’s findings are taken from focus group interviews and survey data from graduates who attended the United States Air Force Academy. The results include descriptive statistics, independent T-tests and several ANOVAs. This study examined how Eisner’s Ecology of the implicit curriculum influenced graduates while they were cadets at the United States Air Force Academy. The findings indicate that the implicit curriculum exerted a form of pressure on cadets that fostered beliefs and attitudes that were at times in conflict with the intentions of the curriculum.
