What is a gifted education graduate certificate?

Arizona State University’s gifted education graduate certificate focuses on theory and pedagogy as it relates to high-performing students, taking their special talents and needs into account. You’ll learn how to develop and provide the most current and relevant instructional methods and services to gifted learners. Technology is a critical resource in educating talented learners, so many courses present valuable digital tools for engagement.

Will this certificate get me a gifted education endorsement?

 

If you’re already a credentialed educator in Arizona, successfully completing this gifted education training will help you qualify for the gifted education endorsement for K-12 education provided by the Arizona Department of Education. You should refer to the Arizona Department of Education website for additional requirements.

If you work as an educator in another state, or plan to do so, please contact your state department of education to confirm this program meets its educational standards and that you’re eligible to apply for an endorsement in your area.

This certificate does not lead to teacher certification. You can earn the gifted education certification on its own or complete a graduate degree at the same time. A Master of Education in Curriculum and Instruction: Gifted Education is also available.

What skills will I earn in this gifted education certificate?

 

Completing a gifted and talented certification online equips you with targeted and relevant skills for supporting high-performing students. You can expect to build mastery in:

  • Advising, educating and developing exceptional students.
  • Identifying top pupils.
  • Measuring and testing in gifted education.
  • Teaching methods for talented learners.

Does my gifted and talented certification say 'online'?

No, Arizona State University’s diplomas don’t specify whether you earn your degree online or in person. All diplomas and transcripts simply say “Arizona State University.” That’s because ASU Online students learn from the same faculty and receive the same course content as in-person students receive.
