Certificate in Applied Behavior Analysis

Earning a certificate in applied behavior analysis (ABA) will increase your understanding of core concepts and strategies used to treat various kinds of behavior issues. Our certificate program can be incorporated into a master’s degree in special education or master's in ABA, or earned independently of a degree to demonstrate a concentration area.

The certificate is an important step in becoming a board certified behavior analyst (BCBA).   In addition to the certificate, you must possess a master’s degree in an approved field, complete independent BCBA supervised field experience hours, and complete one

 additional course (SPCE691) to be eligible to take the BCBA examination.
