M.A. in Applied Behavior Analysis, Ph.D. in Applied Behavior Analysis, Post-Master's Non-Degree Program in Applied Behavior Analysis
Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) is a well developed field of study among the helping and education professions. ABA entails the comprehensive use of empirically validated principles of human learning to enhance the development, abilities, and self-direction skills of both children and adults. The M.A., Post-Master's Non-Degree and Ph.D. programs in Applied Behavior Analysis are interdisciplinary programs that provide coursework across two departments (Education and Psychology). Students are required to show proficiency in coursework and to complete a research thesis. The core curriculum for this program focuses on (a) the methods, principles, and procedures of basic and applied behavior analysis practice and research and (b) the application of behavior analysis and behavioral support in complex environments (i.e., home, school, work, other community settings, and institutional settings). These programs were designed to prepare students for employment within the fields where there are growing demands for competent professionals with expertise in applied behavior analysis: namely, developmental services, special education, and mental health.
These programs have been approved by the Behavior Analyst Certification Board, Inc.
