The innovative Master of Science Degree in Behavior Analysis gives students a broad and deep education, including: knowledge of principles, theory and research methods of applied behavior analysis and the experimental analysis of behavior; principles and procedures for systematic application of behavioral technology in natural environments; and, practical experience in diverse areas such as neuro-operant interventions, functional analysis, early autism intervention, animal welfare, college teaching, and social justice.
Our graduate program was also the nation's first to earn accreditation from the Association for Behavior Analysis International. This distinction means we meet or exceed strict standards for excellence in education. Our courses have also been approved by the Behavior Analysis Certification Board, meaning they meet the standards for preparing professional to practice in Behavior Analysis. The department was awarded the Enduring Programmatic Contributions Award from the Society for the Advancement of Behavior Analysis for establishing a tradition of leadership in teaching, service and scholarship.
