In-Field Endorsement in Gifted Education
Candidates in undergraduate and graduate teacher education programs at Piedmont College may, with the help of their faculty advisor, elect to take a sequence of three foundational courses that lead to the addition of the Gifted In-Field Endorsement to a Georgia teaching certificate. Additionally, certified Georgia educators seeking the endorsement may apply to the Office of Graduate Admissions to register for the Gifted In-Field Endorsement courses as a non-degree seeking student.
Each of the three courses is offered online during the fall, spring and summer semesters; candidates may complete the endorsement in as little as three consecutive 8-week sessions or enroll in classes across a program of study.
Undergraduate degree candidates register for the following 4000 level required courses and graduate students and professional educators register for the following 7000 level required courses:
- EDUC 4421/7721: Characteristics of Gifted Students
- EDUC 4422/7722: Assessment of Gifted Students
- EDUC 4423/7723: Programs, Curriculum, and Methods for Gifted Students
