Gifted Education and Talent Development

Gifted students seek more challenges and need extra stimulation to help them succeed in a typical classroom setting. With an Advanced Graduate Certificate (AGC) in Gifted Education and Talent Development from Webster University, you will learn how to identify, understand, nurture and develop the talents of these unique young students.

Following the American Psychological Association Center for Gifted Education Policy’s definition of gifted, Webster’s curriculum is designed to help you enhance the achievement and performance of children and adolescents with special gifts and talents in all domains. You’ll explore the conceptions, definitions and identification of individuals with gifts and talents, including students from diverse backgrounds.

This 18-hour advanced graduate certificate is for educators who already have a master’s degree and experience with gifted education. Additionally, we encourage student involvement in professional organizations, conferences and publications promoting and advocating for the learning and wellbeing of individuals with gifts and talents.

If you’re passionate about making a special impact on the lives of gifted students inside and outside the classroom, apply today.
