The Master of Arts in Education with an emphasis in Gifted Education program prepares the Lindenwood student to work effectively with gifted children. Students 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. Graduates 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. This program is excellent for teachers in honors classrooms as well as administrators focused on becoming gifted coordinators. Students who complete the program will receive an add-on Missouri teaching certification. Master of Arts in Education students may also enroll in these courses as electives as allowed by their specific program.
Students must also complete six credit hours of electives. EDU 53000 Survey of Learning Styles and three hours of conference credits are recommended, or other electives as approved by the program chair.
