Online Gifted Education Program

Master's Degree

This 36 credit hour program is for learners who wish to earn a MA

degree in gifted education. It includes the five courses required

for the Florida Endorsement in Gifted Education as well as courses

in assessment, issues in education, and a supervised practicum.

Graduate tuition rates apply.  In-state tuition for out-of-state students may be available.


Gifted Endorsement Coursework

The USF Gifted Endorsement Program is comprised of 15 graduate hours (5 classes). Students who successfully complete these courses will receive a USF College of Education Stamp on their transcript indicating completion of the Gifted Endorsement classes, and may apply to the Florida Department of Education for this endorsement to be shown on their licensure. This is an add-on endorsement, available to students who have earned and can provide initial teaching credentials. Permission to register for classes is granted to students who have been admitted to this program (or the MA in Gifted). A Non-degree application must also be filed with USF in order for students to receive a U-ID number (required for matriculation).
