Certificate in Applied Behavior Analysis

Earning a certificate in applied behavior analysis (ABA) is an important step in becoming a board certified behavior analyst (BCBA). If you have your master’s degree and have completed BCBA practicum experience, you are ready to begin classes for your certificate in applied behavior analysis.

Ball State was the first school in the state of Indiana to offer a certificate in ABA with an emphasis in autism.

To be eligible to take the BCBA examination, you must possess a master’s degree and complete a BCBA supervised practicum experience. This program can be completed in conjunction with the graduate certificate in autism to partially complete the requirements for the master’s degree in special education or can count toward a master's degree in applied behavioral analysis.

This program is offered online.
