Truman is proud to be a leader in gifted education and support schools by offering a completely online Master of Arts in Gifted Education degree that culminates in DESE certification. Currently, the cost is $310 per credit hour, and there are no additional fees. For those who are not seeking a master’s degree, enrollment for individual gifted education certification courses is also available. As July 1, 2024 nears and Senate Bill 681 goes into effect, Truman is working to support schools that are developing and/or enhancing their gifted education programming.
