Gifted Education

The M.A.Ed. program in gifted education is designed for teachers or administrators who already hold certification in early, middle, or secondary education, or endorsement in at least one area of special education. The program is structured to provide students with understanding of the unique cognitive/affective needs of gifted students, curriculum and instruction to meet those needs and the processes for developing appropriate programs and services in the context of general or special education. 

First Aid , CPR and AED Training Licensure Requirement

Students seeking licensure in Virginia will need to complete training in emergency first aid, cardiopulmonary resuscitation, and the use of automated external defibrillators.  Students will need to provide documentation of completion of this training, which is usually an official card.  Training courses are offered by the American Red Cross and the American Heart Association.
