The Giftedness, Creativity and Talent Development Program at the University of Connecticut offers multiple pathways for interested graduate students to pursue advanced-level courses. Students have opportunities to gain in-depth knowledge about identifying and serving students for special programs and services to develop their gifts and talents. Students can also pursue research in the area of creativity and innovation. The program is housed in the Department of Educational Psychology, which offers a graduate certificate, master of arts, sixth-year certificate, and doctor of philosophy programs in gifted and talented education.
