Applied Behavior Analysis graduate certificate
Many school and healthcare professionals are seeking graduate-level programs that teach them to incorporate behavior analytic principles and practices into their work with individuals with learning, behavior, and performance challenges.
The GVSU psychology department offers an online graduate certificate in Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) that allows students to pursue certification as a Board Certified Behavior Analyst (BCBA). Students will develop in-depth knowledge and applied competence in the delivery of behavior analysis to improve the quality of life of individuals in schools, community, and work settings. Graduates are equipped with the skills to bring about socially significant behavior change through data-based decision making and program development.
Admission to the school psychology program or a master's degree is required for acceptance to the program. To become a Board Certified Behavior Analyst (BCBA), students must meet the Behavior Analyst Certification Board course requirements and supervised experience requirements, and pass the BCBA exam.
