Applied Behavior Analysis is the systematic application of principles of behavior to improve socially significant behavior. Our program strives to prepare competent, ethical, and professional behavior analysts who work with persons with developmental disabilities.  

Our high-quality, synchronous online classes allow students to get as close to the real thing as possible. Through the use of interactive, state-of-the-art learning technology that maximizes opportunities for active participation with both the instructor and peers, this program allows working educators and practitioners to complete the course work and practicum requirements necessary to apply to sit for the Behavior Analyst Certification Board (BACB) Exam while continuing in their current professional roles.* 

Our program was just awarded "Best ABA curriculum" and voted #2 ABA online program in the country based on criteria evaluating academic quality, student sucess, and affordability!
