About the program

Become grounded in the idea that giftedness and creativity are expressed in diverse ways among diverse people; that creativity is a universal potential to be nurtured and enhanced; and that the best education is tailored to students' specific needs. You will focus on instruction, research, and service.

As you move through this program, you will develop knowledge and skills to teach and support gifted, creative, and advanced P-12 students. Because this degree has a more applied emphasis than the masters of arts, it is primarily designed for students who want to work in the schools.
