As a student in the gifted education certificate program, you will gain an understanding of the theory and pedagogy needed to identify and serve gifted children. You will acquire skills to develop current instructional methods and services for these students, as well as how to create gifted education programs based on the needs of students and their school districts. You will learn how to work with administrations, school boards and parents and learn how to be an advocate for gifted students in their schools.

The program is ideal for public or private teachers in honors classrooms and those who want to gain new skills to increase their marketability, as well as administrators focused on becoming gifted coordinators.
