The goal of the Behavior Analysis MA Program is to provide students with a well-rounded foundation in psychology and behavior analysis through an integrated sequence of coursework, practicum, and research activities. Students obtain competency in the basic principles of learning and the application of these principles with particular emphasis on interventions for children with developmental disabilities. Practicum and research experiences are provided in home, school, and clinic settings. All students complete a major research project prior to graduation. The program includes a course sequence and practicum that have been approved by the Behavior Analyst Certification Board. Students completing the coursework and practicum requirements of the program will be eligible to sit for the Board Certified Behavior Analyst (BCBA) exam. The coursework also prepares graduates who are interested in becoming Licensed Psychological Associates. Furthermore, graduates will be prepared to pursue doctoral degrees in psychology or behavior analysis. 


This program includes a BACB pre-approved course sequence.
