Education of gifted students is one of the areas of importance in our country in recent years and it is accepted as a "priority area" by YÖK. Education of gifted students is scientifically positioned in the main disciplines of special education departments. In our country, the number of these main disciplines to be opened in the early 2000s is quite limited. In the Gazi Faculty of Education, our Division of Gifted Education was established in January 2020 with the decision of YÖK. A faculty member was appointed to our department in July of the same year and started its activities actively. In accordance with the decision taken by YÖK in 2016, there is no undergraduate program in our department since there should only be one teaching program in special education departments. Our department offers courses in the field of gifted students in the "special education teaching" undergraduate program, and continues its postgraduate courses and consultancy services. As of December 2020, a faculty member and a research assistant are working in our department.

In addition to giving lectures related to gifted students at the undergraduate level, our department also conducts lectures related to our field within the education common courses in our Institute of Educational Sciences.
