The Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) On-Campus Program at the University of Washington College of Education provides students with the skills and knowledge necessary to become Board Certified Behavior Analysts (BCBAs). At the end of this two-year, full-time program, students will have met all of the coursework requirements to apply to sit for the *BCBA certification exam and will have earned a master’s degree in special education.  

Applied Behavior Analysis Program Coursework 

Students accepted into the ABA On-Campus Program will complete coursework on the University of Washington campus, instructed by leaders in the field of special education and applied behavior analysis. All classes are offered in the late afternoon and are designed to promote both an understanding of behavioral principles and foster an applied and collaborative approach to ABA. 


Over the course of this two-year program, students will engage in a group practicum that will provide half of their required BACB supervision. Complete supervision packages are available to a limited number of students through university-affiliated BCBAs for a fee.
