The 15-credit ABA graduate certificate includes specialized training in the practice of applied behavior analysis. The certificate can be incorporated into a master's program or earned independently of a master’s degree to demonstrate a concentration area. However, you must have a master’s in an approved area, complete 1500 supervised field experience hours, and complete one additional course (SPCE 691) to be eligible to take the BCBA exam.

Specific courses may vary slightly based on student objectives. For effective program planning, a discussion of your career goals with an advisor is highly recommended.

Please note that the ABA graduate certificate does not lead to a teaching license. Graduate certificates will not accept transfer credits.
