Introduction: Higher education is one of the most important places that plays an important role in promoting educational justice. Although special strategies have been used by experts to establish educational justice, the existence of educational injustices indicates that many of these strategies have failed and the need to change attitudes and new educational strategies in the curriculum components by professionals is quite evident. Therefore, the purpose of this study was to design curriculum objectives based on educational justice in higher education.
Methods: This research was conducted in a qualitative manner using a strategy based on grounded theoty approach. The main method of data collection was semi-structured interviews. The research environment consisted of 13 experts in the field of curriculum and education using purposive sampling. In order to obtain the validity of the data, two methods of reviewing the participants and reviewing the non-participating experts in the research were used. The data analysis in three stages, open coding, axial coding and selective coding were done with the help of MAXQDA12 software.
Results: The findings indicated that the lack of fair attitude of officials in formulating the goals and content of higher education curriculum, as well as inattention to experts in the field of curriculum, higher education is not affected by the future needs of society and lack of needs assessment at the national level are hindering the development of educational justice in higher education.
Conclusion: In order to achieve educational justice in higher education, it is better to pay attention to the interests and talents of volunteers when deciding to formulate goals and review topics. Curricula should be related to the labor market, industry and trade, and education tailored to the needs of students and society. Pay special attention to the expertise of professors and consult all professors to develop a curriculum.
