The Applied Behavior
Analysis (ABA) specialization prepares graduates to conduct
developmental, educational, and behavioral assessments; design and implement
intervention programs to target communication, social, adaptive behavior, and
problem behavior reduction goals; as well as supervising behavior analytic
assessment and intervention programs.
Students in this program will be prepared to work with individuals with
a wide range of disabilities, with a specialization in autism and other
developmental disabilities, such as Down syndrome and intellectual
disability. This program
prepares the graduate to ultimately take the Board Certified Behavior Analyst (BCBA)
exam. Graduates from this program have a
variety of work opportunities in clinics, hospitals, public and private
schools, and self-employment.
