Gifted Education Certificate

Aligned with USC Rossier's mission to serve high-need students in urban centers, the Certificate in Gifted Education was designed to provide candidates concurrently enrolled in MAT and MAT-TESOL programs with the competencies to respond to the needs, interests and abilities of gifted students in either homogeneous or heterogeneous regular classrooms or specific school environments defined for gifted and high-ability students.

The Certificate in Gifted Education enables MAT and MAT-TESOL candidates to recognize the manifestations of giftedness among cultural, linguistic and economically diverse students in urban schools, to facilitate the identification of underrepresented students as gifted and to provide differentially appropriate curriculum for them.
