Applied Behavior Analysis, Graduate Certificate
The Graduate Certificate in Applied Behavior Analysis program seeks to provide students with the knowledge base necessary for eligibility to take the Behavior Analysis Certification Board (BACB) exam. The curriculum, which is based on the BACB Fourth Edition Task List, includes six courses, all of which are offered online. Four standard programs of study are available; students may take one or two courses each term and may elect not to enroll at all during the summer, regardless of course load chosen. Special programs of study may also be arranged.
A representative program in which students take two courses during the academic year and the summer off follows. Behavior Assessment (CAEP 6327) and Research and Design Methods (CAEP 6328) are taken first as they are prerequisites for enrolling in the remaining four courses.
