Graduate Certificate in Behavior Analysis — Program Overview
If you already have a Master's degree in psychology, social work, nursing or education and want to become a Board Certified Behavior Analyst (BCBA); or if you have a Bachelor's degree in the same disciplines and want to become a Board Certified Assistant Behavior Analyst (BCABA), this program is designed for you.
The program requires 18 hours of coursework and 15 credit hours of practicum experiences.
As we do in our full Master's program, we partner with regional organizations like the Pier Center for Autism to provide you with practicum experiences working with individuals on the autism spectrum, people with other challenging behaviors, and their families.
Before enrolling, students must prove completion of at least the equivalent of a bachelor's degree from an accredited college or university, and GPA for the most recent 60 credit hours of undergraduate work must be at least 2.7 on a 4.0 scale.
