WKU offering Specialist Degree in Gifted Education

A new Specialist Degree in Gifted Education and Talent Development will expand upon the graduate school offerings in gifted education at WKU.

Dr. Antonia Szymanski, a professor of gifted education at WKU, speaks during a presentation at the Kentucky Association for Gifted Education conference in February. Dr. Szymanski is among the graduate faculty teaching courses for the new Specialist Degree in Gifted Education and Talent Development.

The specialist degree recently approved by the Council on Postsecondary Education adds to WKU’s MAE in Gifted Education and Talent Development offered since 2015 and the gifted endorsement offered since 1983.

“As a national leader in providing educational opportunities for professionals in the field of gifted education, we are pleased to offer the Ed.S. in Gifted Education and Talent Development,” said Dr. Sam Evans, dean of WKU’s  College of Education and Behavioral Sciences. “This advanced degree will build the capacity of educational leaders to enhance instructional practices, influence policy and improve education for gifted students.”
