Master of Applied Behavior Analysis and Clinical Science

Promising flexible schedules and significant cost and time savings, the Master of Applied Behavior Analysis and Clinical Science (ABACS) program allows qualified Rollins seniors to simultaneously earn undergraduate and graduate credits toward a master’s degree in applied behavior analysis and clinical science from the College’s Hamilton Holt School.

By continuing your graduate studies at Rollins, you’ll continue to reap the benefits of the College’s signature personalized learning environment, opportunities for hands-on experience, and the expertise of the best professors in the South.

Rollins’ ABACS graduate program is designed for students interested in understanding how human behaviors are learned and how they can change over time. Demand for behavior analysts, especially those specializing in autism, has more than doubled in recent years. Following a junior-colleague model to ensure high-quality mentoring, Rollins’ ABACS program is one of just 22 master’s programs in the country and the only program in Orlando to earn accreditation from the Association for Behavior Analysis International.

While gaining numerous practical benefits—competitive advantage in the marketplace, BCBA exam prep, higher earnings potential—students in the accelerated MHR program can save up to one year of time and $8,000 in tuition and other costs. The program is available to both College of Liberal Arts and Hamilton Holt School students entering their senior year and is a part- or full-time option for all majors who have not yet completed all of their electives.
