Program Overview

Liberty University designed the Graduate Certificate in Gifted Education program to instruct different techniques for educating advanced students. The curriculum will provide educators with ways to develop effective teaching methods and improve the quality of educational settings. The program focuses on using moral and biblical perspectives that may enhance the program’s students marketability within future careers. The graduate certificate program also encourages guidance counselors, school administrators and parents to enroll.

Students will be required to complete 12 credits within four designated courses. Some of the program’s courses are Principles & Practices in Gifted Education, Organization & Design of Gifted Education Programs, and Readings & Research in Gifted Education. The courses have an eight week format and may be completed entirely online. The cost for each full-time credit during the 2013-2014 academic school year was $490.

Throughout the program, courses will provide students instruction within a variety of educational topics. The program may help further the educator’s understanding of the educational and emotional needs of gifted learners. Students within the program will gain experience in developing curricula that differ for advanced learners within homogeneous or heterogenous classrooms. The courses will also teach ways to deliver gifted education within extra curricular, field focused, and integrated programs.

Students must complete all of the program’s credits through Liberty University with grade of “C” or higher. To be awarded the certificate, students must complete the program with a minimum GPA of 2.0.
Liberty University also provides certificate students access to academic advisors, the online library and the Online Writing Center.
