Boise State Now Offering Master’s Emphasis in the Field of Gifted and Talented Education 0

Starting spring 2014, Boise State is offering a Master’s Degree in Curriculum and Instruction with an emphasis in Gifted and Talented Education. This flexible degree allows students pursuing their Gifted and Talented endorsement to take endorsement courses at the graduate level and then apply all of them toward a Master’s Degree. By adding approximately 14 additional units to your endorsement, you can earn your Master’s Degree. That is only one full time semester.

This degree takes into consideration the schedule of working teachers by offering a combination of face to face and on-line course as well as providing some distance learning options for courses offered during the school year.

For those considering a Doctoral Degree, an Ed.D; in Curriculum in Instruction with an emphasis in Gifted Education can also be earned. If you are considering this option, but are not sure, it is important to sign up and pay for full graduate credit when taking your endorsement courses. It is very difficult to convert them over later. This will leave you with a full range of options later.

For more information about these degree programs contact Sherry Dismuke at cheryledismuke@boisestate.edu. Spring and summer courses are currently enrolling. Summer courses are being offered the first 5 weeks in summer and again the last week in July at Edufest.
