                Coursework in Gifted Education

As with all AIG licenses in the state of North Carolina, the program entails completing four courses.  At ECU, our courses run in a four course sequence which begins in the summer and concludes the following summer. Therefore the next opportunity to become involved in coursework at ECU will be in the 2013-2014 cohort which begins in June 2013.
All of the courses required by the AIG Licensure Program at ECU are taught online, with the exception of two face-to-face weeks (one the first summer and one the second summer) involving a camp for gifted children.


The four courses are offered in the sequence listed below. Unfortunately they are not offered more frequently than in the sequence listed below.
