M.A. in Special Education with an Emphasis in Applied Behavioral Analysis
University of Minnesota Department of Educational Psychology within the College of Education and Human Development.
What do board certified behavior analysts do? Board certified behavior analysts (BCBAs) work with people with disabilities—such as autism spectrum disorder and developmental disabilities—to recognize and analyze problem behaviors and recommend actions to improve their day-to-day lives.
Why become a board certified behavior analyst? 11.2% of people in Minnesota and 13.1% of people in the United State are living with some kind of disability according to the Minnesota Department of Employment and Economic Development. That’s approximately one in every ten people. The M.A. in special education with an emphasis applied behavior analysis (A.B.A.), prepares graduate students to meet this growing need by becoming a BCBA.
Why applied behavior analysis at the University of Minnesota? We’re looking for psychology and education majors and those interested in applied research who want to make a difference in the world around them, and we’re partial to Gophers. The program is pending Board Certified Behavior Analyst (BCBA) board approval and is designed to meet the requirements for national board certification in applied behavior analysis. Graduates will be prepared to sit for the certification exam.
