Note: this program may require Virginia fieldwork to complete.

Don’t just teach. Nurture.

Meeting the needs of gifted students in the general education classroom presents unique challenges. When these students are not properly engaged and stimulated academically, they don’t stand a chance of meeting their full potential.

MBU’s Master of Education with a concentration in Gifted Education prepares teachers to work with gifted students in K-12 public and private schools. You’ll learn the added skills needed to help gifted students embrace their talents here. Not only will you be able to provide them with creative and academic challenges inside the classroom, you will also be prepared to offer social and emotional guidance to these extraordinary children.

Happy graduates
