MS or EdS in Behavior Analysis
Our Behavior Analysis program prepares students for leadership roles in the implementation, evaluation and administration of applied behavioral analytic principles and methods. Our innovative curriculum emphasizes contemporary research and the fusion of applied behavior analysis with other scientific fields.
While many students in our Behavior Analysis programs are drawn from the fields of education and special education, the potential applications for this degree vary widely. Our alumni go on to satisfying careers in diverse fields such as behavioral medicine, organizational behavior management, instructional design and animal training.
Our evening class schedule allows students to continue working full-time in a related field throughout the program. The Simmons course sequence in Behavior Analysis is approved by the Behavior Analyst Certification Board™ and meets the coursework requirements for the Board Certified Behavior Analyst™ (BCBA) examination. Simmons on-campus program graduates achieved an average first-time pass rate of 83% on the BCBA® exam in 2017, as compared to the average of 65%. Additionally, our program is accredited by the Behavior Analysis Accreditation Board ("BAAB") of the Association for Behavior Analysis International ("ABAI").
