Are you a high school teacher looking to boost your qualifications to teach gifted and talented students?

Our M.S. Ed. program offers a concentration in the gifted and talented area that provides coursework for high school teachers seeking to enhance their knowledge and understanding of working with this special population.

The concentration consists of 36 hours of coursework.

The coursework focuses on developing specialized approaches to students and curriculum, on understanding adolescent behavior and gifted/talented psychology and other issues.

It meets the required accreditation outcomes, prepares candidates with required research skills, guarantees that curriculum needs are met and adds the recognition of a concentration in gifted and talented instruction to the M.S.Ed. degree.
