Courses

 

The "Executive Summer-to-Summer" program consists of 33 hours, all of which are available online.  Courses begin in May (other start dates are also possible) and include rotations of consecutive 3-week, 5-week, and 8-week courses.  The flexibility of this program makes it ideal for the classroom teacher.  The gifted and talented certificate may be earned concurrently with the master's degree in Educational Psychology or as a certificate-only option if the candidate already has a master's degree.
