    Is this program strictly online or does it require on-campus intensives as well? So, could I complete the program from across the country with no problem?

  • Kyle Wallace says:

    Hi Tori – Our program does not require any campus visits and is delivered 100% online. There is field experience associated with the program, but you will be able to do it in your own school. One of our enrollment advisors will follow up with you to make sure you have all the information you need about what the field experience entails and how it pertains specifically to you. In the meantime, if you have any additional questions please contact one of our Enrollment Advisors at 800-226-0075.

  • Cindi says:

    What program would be best suited for teaching in the high school or college level for culinary and pasrty arts??

  • Patricia says:

    I have a Bachelor of Arts in Theatre Arts and Design. I am 40 years old, and have always wanted to be a teacher. Am I eligible to apply to the Master’s of Education Program, specifically the program designed for teachers of children in the Gifted, Talented, and Creative programs? My own children participate in this type of program at their schools, so I have experience with children who are designated as Gifted and Talented.

  • Kyle Wallace says:

    Hi Cindi,

    Our General Curriculum and Instruction program is probably the best for teaching that subject. It is designed to help teachers take their knowledge and skills to the next level in the classroom. Just so you know, our programs are designed for the K-12 level, so I am not certain how much it will assist with the college level. You can find a list of courses and descriptions on our website by clicking here. If you have further questions please feel free to contact us at (800) 226-0075 and we will be happy to assist you!

  • Jeannie Rosa says:

    Hi Patricia,

    It’s a pleasure to hear from you! At this time our program does not lead to teaching certificate and the gifted program is geared towards teachers. If you have further questions please feel free to contact us at (800) 226-0075 and we will be happy to assist you!

  • Kristi says:

    I already have a master’s degree in education, but I would like to get my gifted endorsement. Is there an online program that can do this?

  • Hi Kristi, Congratulations on achieving your Master’s degree in Education and thank you for your interest in the University of Cincinnati’s Gifted Endorsement/Certificate program. Our distance learning course is 100% online. If you reside in the state of OH then yes, this program would offer you the gifted endorsement for OH. If you live outside of OH then we suggest that you check with your states requirements for obtaining an endorsement to ensure that it aligns with what our program offers. Please contact an Enrollment Advisor at 800-226-0075 to assist you with any other questions.

  • Jean K. says:

    Which courses are required for the gifted endorsement only? I already hold an M.Ed. and am looking for just the gifted endorsement.

  • Hi Jean, thank you for your interest in the Gifted Certificate/Endorsement Distance Learning program at the University of Cincinnati. Please review the required courses for the Gifted Certificate/Endorsement and contact one of our Enrollment Advisors at 1-800-226-0075.
