In-Field Endorsement in Gifted Education

(Also Offered Online, Click Here for More Information)

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
