Master’s/Sixth-Year Plan of Study

Gifted and Talented Education

Plan of Study/Core Courses

A plan of study must be prepared, signed by the student and members of the advisory committee, and submitted to the graduate school for approval by the executive committee of the graduate faculty council when the student has completed not more than twelve credits of course work to be applied to the degree. Full-time students meet with their academic advisor during their first semester.

The courses below represent the core courses for each degree or diploma program. We consider students’ prior professional and educational experiences; therefore, there is flexibility in developing each person’s plan of study.
