Online Master of Education in Foundations in Behavior Analysis Program Objectives

The Master of Education in Foundations in Behavior Analysis provides students with foundational knowledge in applied behavior analysis, education, and psychology related to practice in schools and other agencies serving children, including those with disabilities. Because the first six courses in the Master of Education program are the same courses offered in the Behavior Analysis Graduate Certificate program, many of these objectives are the same.

Program Objectives

  • Offer an online educational experience supported by a curriculum fully grounded in the core foundation of applied behavior analysis.
