The Behavior Analyst certification program is designed for the individual who is ready to take the next step into the exciting and rewarding field of behavior analysis. Although the program is designed for students who already possess a graduate-level degree, SHSU offers the M.A. degree and M.Ed. degree programs in Special Education, either of which can be concurrently completed with this program. The specialized skills possessed by behavior analysts are in high demand and applicable to a rich variety of professional careers and settings, including but not limited to elementary, middle, and high school education; education administration; and behavioral therapy.
This program requires students to complete a year of supervised fieldwork in applied behavior analysis with both individual and group supervision. Both the course sequence and field experience provide the academic foundations for becoming a Board Certified Behavior Analyst (BCBA), which is an internationally recognized certification. Our BCBA certification program complies with existing standards for professional certification set by the Behavior Analysis Certification Board.
The BCBA certification program offers premium flexibility for working professionals, with evening courses offered at The Woodlands Center. Late afternoon and early evening course offerings are available during summer semesters.
