GONZALEZ PEREZ, Cándido  e  PLASCENCIA DE LA TORRE, Juan Carlos. Experiences of knowledge acquired through the hidden curriculum by professionals graduated from the School of Psychology in Tepatitlan, Mexico. Educación [online]. 2017, vol.41, n.1, pp.62-72. ISSN 2215-2644.

A profession’s knowledge is obtained in college in two ways: through academic approaches poured into the curriculum, and through abilities and skills they have acquired and are transmitted informally by the teachers. It is called hidden curriculum to all the knowledge of importance that teachers teach voluntarily or involuntarily. The main objective of this paper is to describe in particular how the students acquired knowledge and skills in their work from the knowledge transmitted by some of their teachers and with the characteristic that this knowledge is not part of the curriculum requirements. These results come from interviews made to all graduates of the generation 2014 who completed their studies at the University Center of Los Altos University of Guadalajara in Mexico. We present in a more specific manner how psychologists acquired skills they use in their work related to the neurological field even without using the psychometric material that are supposed to be used in laboratory, practice that was not carried out by the lack of necessary component. Similar facts regarding the application of group dynamics in labor skills, development of psychodiagnosis and neuropsychology were observed. All of this was possible because teachers who were in charge of different subjects, transmitted skills they have cultivated through daily practice of their profession and the main characteristic of those that knowledge are not explicit in the Psychology curricula.
