Our online programs in autism meet an ever-increasing need and are changing the lives of children with autism, their parents, the community, and students who are preparing to work with those affected by autism. We offer the state’s only master’s degree in Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) with an emphasis in autism, and we are approved by the Behavior Analyst Certification Board (BACB).

Our programs are accredited and are led by two nationally recognized distinguished professors, David McIntosh and Susan Wilczynski. We specialize in preparing students so that they are ready to become BACB certified upon graduation.

Expansive and Growing

The autism and ABA programs are growing rapidly. Enrollment in our program has greatly increased, now topping 900 students from more than 40 states and seven countries.

Consumer advocacy group GetEducated.com also ranked two of our online master’s programs in education in the top 10 among its “Best Buys,” with our special education program placing third.

The Teachers College holds numerous rankings and recognitions and is accredited by the National Association of Colleges for Teacher Education (NCATE).
