This program is intended for those who seek advanced knowledge in the field of applied behavior analysis. The 18-credit curriculum is specifically designed to prepare students to sit for the BCBA certification examination sponsored by the Behavior Analyst Certification Board. After completing the program, students will be able to:
1. Describe the basic principles of behavior and how those principles relate to community/classroom situations with clients.
2. Develop procedures to determine the purpose of aberrant behavior for an individual, determine if targeted behaviors warrant intervention, and monitor the effects of interventions.
3. Develop interventions based on the purpose of aberrant behavior.
4. Develop instructional programs to teach new behaviors that are functional in school and community settings.
For admission to the Graduate School, an applicant must hold either (1) a baccalaureate degree from a regionally accredited U.S. institution or (2) a tertiary (postsecondary) degree that is deemed comparable to a four-year bachelor's degree from a regionally accredited U.S. institution. This degree must be from an officially recognized degree-granting institution in the country in which it operates.
