About

The Master of Arts in Gifted Education program at Lindenwood University prepares you as a Lindenwood student to work effectively with gifted children.

You will examine and analyze research needed to identify and serve gifted children and learn the knowledge and skills required to develop and provide the most current instructional methods and services for gifted students. You will also learn how to create gifted programs based on the needs of a school district and learn how to work with administrators, school board members, and parents.
