M.S. with BCBA (Board Certified Behavior Analyst) Coursework


Beginning in the Fall of 2009, the Department of Special Education and Rehabilitation Counseling at Utah State University began offering a 3-year Master's sequence that will prepare individuals as Behavior Specialists.  Participants will complete the coursework necessary to sit for the National Board Certified Behavior Analysis (BCBA) exam (individuals already possessing a Master's degree can apply to take only BCBA-preparation courses).  Students will gain valuable clinical and research experience that will strengthen their professional skills and/or prepare them for further graduate study.
