Details

You will gain the theory and pedagogy needed to identify and serve gifted children and the knowledge and skills required to develop and provide the most current instructional methods and services.

The program is designed for educators, administrators, therapists and family members who fill important roles in the lives of gifted children. Faculty understand gifted students require differentiated instruction and teach how to develop and reach their potential.

As a graduate of the program, you will learn how to be an advocate in your own schools for gifted students and gain the tools to identify potential and address specific needs of students that are either talented or gifted. You will also learn how to create gifted programs based on the needs of your school district and learn how to work with administrations, school boards and parents. The program provides the 12 semester hours of coursework in gifted education required for the gifted education (K-12) endorsement from the Arizona Department of Education.
