Growing attention to culture in producing science of psychology in Iran and psychology education to Iranians requires a culture-sensitive curriculum planning. Curriculum of the undergraduate psychology major in Iran (approved in 2012) is an important educational document and its designers paid particular attention to culture. However, 10 years after approval of this curriculum it seems to need revision. The current research, using quantitative content analysis, aims to investigate Islamic-cultural components of above-mentioned curriculum. The results showed that, even though a “cultural psychology” course is missing in this curriculum, it contains three cultural courses based on Islamic teachings and Muslim scholars. About half of the total 69 courses of this curriculum (including core, required, and optional courses) contain at least one cultural-Islamic component. Though, in many cases attention to culture and Islam is limited to putting the words culture and Islam in the document. In addition, name of Iranian theorists and their theories, psychometric tools designed by Iranians, and so forth is lacking in a curriculum that intended to indigenize. Revision in above-mentioned curriculum which is far more than a mere curriculum but an educational document in the discipline of psychology, not only requires adding a cultural psychology course but also attention to true content of cultural psychology in rest of the courses and the entire curriculum.
