Applied Behavior Analysis (Grad Certificate)

The graduate certificate program in applied behavior analysis pairs research and experience to prepare professionals to work with individuals with special learning and behavior needs using the principles of applied behavior analysis.

Applied projects and assignments allow students to focus on the population with which they plan to work, while gaining the knowledge and skills to use applied behavior analysis across various populations and settings. Graduates are well prepared to provide applied behavior analysis and evidence-based consultative services and support to clients, community and family members across a variety of settings.


Mary Lou Fulton Teachers College offers university coursework verified by the Behavior Analyst Certification Board for students interested in sitting for the board-certified behavior analyst examination. Once certified, these professionals are equipped to meet diverse behavior needs and make a lasting difference in the community. The course sequence meets the Behavior Analyst Certification Board-required 315 classroom hours of graduate-level instruction aligned with the BCBA/BCaBA task list (fifth edition). BCBA supervised independent fieldwork supervision hours, required for certification, is arranged and completed by the student separately from their ASU coursework. An optional remote supervised independent fieldwork practicum (SPE 580 Applied Behavior Analysis Practicum) is available.

Students seeking a master's degree as well as the verified university coursework to sit for the BCBA exam should apply to the MA program in Special Education (Applied Behavior Analysis).
