GCT@UConn (a.k.a. Three Summers) is for motivated educators who have professional or family obligations that make regular year study impossible.  The program is designed to allow educators to keep their teaching positions while earning a graduate degree or professional diploma part-time in two summers with additional online course work throughout the year.  The program culminates in a Sixth-Year Diploma in Professional Education or Master of Arts degree in Educational Psychology with an emphasis in Giftedness, Creativity, and Talent Development.
