Education: Applied Behavior Analysis (M.A.)


Return to Graduate Programs Return to: Graduate Programs

The concentration in Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) is designed to prepare students to implement behavioral strategies that will support children, youth and adults in a variety of environments. Students learn to work corroboratively with residential and vocational staff, teachers, families, psychologists, psychiatrists, regulatory agencies and community support personnel. They learn to build skills, reduce challenging behaviors and improve the quality of life for children and youth through applied behavioral methods. In addition, students who successfully complete all of the course work will be prepared to apply for an internship and to sit for the Certification Examination of the National Behavior Analyst Certification Board. This national certification will expand the graduate’s employment options as a behavioral consultant or behavior specialist in a community, school, vocational, or residential program. Admittance into the ABA program neither provides nor guarantees placement into an internship.
