Graduate Programs

Master of Applied Behavior Analysis and Clinical Science (ABACS)

Applied behavior analysis is a systematic, research-based application for analyzing, understanding, and changing human behavior. The mission of the ABACS program is to produce master’s level graduates who are skilled in both the behavioral analysis and clinical science applications of behavioral theory.

Upon completion of the program, students will possess the knowledge and research skills to assess whether an intervention is empirically supported. Additionally, with the assistance of a faculty mentor, students will acquire the skills to design and evaluate behavioral interventions or research supporting a scientific approach to behavior change. Because the program also includes a focus on clinical science, graduates will be well prepared for Ph.D. programs at other behaviorally oriented institutions.
