As an alternative to the 30-hour requirement, teachers may opt to pursue a gifted endorsement for their Ohio teaching license. The following universities offer graduate programs in gifted education. Some are endorsements only. Most offer Master’s programs, and a few also offer doctoral programs. Check the individual universities for more details, including changes in program offerings (face to face versus online, etc.).
University of Cincinnati is offering teachers a 30% discount on tuition for their gifted endorsement program. They will be holding an informational meeting before each semester. Attendance is not mandatory to enroll in the program, and attendees are not obligated to enroll.
