Earn a certificate in behavior analysis as an undergraduate student. The courses will provide you with the knowledge and skills necessary to function as a Board-Certified Assistant Behavior Analyst (BCaBA) and are aligned to the requirements of the Behavior
Analyst Certification Board. The courses satisfy one of the three requirements to be eligible to become a BCaBA. (Note: The two remaining requirements, supervised field experience and earning a passing score on the BCaBA examination, are not part
of this undergraduate certificate.) Find more information about the BCaBA requirements here.
Professionals working with individuals with behavioral concerns are increasingly being required to gain training and certifications by employers. The Behavior Analysis Certification Board is a national organization that provides certification for both
graduate- and undergraduate-level students.
You can attain the Board-Certified Assistant Behavior Analyst credential by completing coursework, field hours, and passing a national examination. The courses comprising the certificate program prepare you to work with individuals of all ages who demonstrate
the need for well-designed behavioral planning.
The coursework that makes up the certificate program contains the required material to allow you to pursue the national certification. Completing this coursework during your undergraduate studies, will enable you to take the national exam and begin the
supervised field hours required, as soon as you are employed. This will be attractive to all employers who require the Board-Certified Assistant Behavior Analysis credential such as school districts, social agencies, approved private schools, etc.
