The Master of Education in Curriculum and Instruction: Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) pairs research and experience to prepare professionals to work with individuals with special learning and behavior needs using the principles of applied behavior analysis.
Program courses are designed to prepare students to focus on the population with whom they plan to work as well as to gain knowledge and skills to use ABA across a variety of individuals and settings. All courses are online, combining a range of resources and technologies to provide students the opportunity to interact directly with program faculty and classmates. Our graduates will be well prepared to provide evidence-based practices in ABA and consultative services and support to clients, community members and family members across a variety of settings.
ASU’s Teachers College offers university coursework pre–approved by the Behavior Analyst Certification Board for students interested in sitting for the Board Certified Behavior Analyst examination. BCBA certificants are equipped to meet and address diverse behavior needs and make a lasting difference in the community. The ASU course sequence meets the BACB–required 270 classroom hours of graduate–level instruction aligned with the Fourth Edition Task List. BCBA supervision hours, required for certification, are arranged and completed by the student separately from ASU coursework. Students interested in only the pre–approved university coursework for the national BCBA exam may apply to the Applied Behavior Analysis Graduate Certificate.
