The accumulation of information in a society causes changes in the content and structure of its school curriculum. Citizenship education is a significant constituent part of the education curriculum, and integrated curricula are increasingly common. There are different kinds of such integrated curricula, but citizenship education is allotted an important place in all of them. This article analyses the viewpoints of teachers in Latvia about the kinds of curricula, the place of citizenship education in the curricula, and the place of citizenship as an interdisciplinary topic. The teachers in the study more frequently use interdisciplinary topics. There is a discrepancy between the planning of the topics on citizenship education and their use in the study process.
