Master of Arts in Special Education LIDA

Program Overview

The Low Incidence Disabilities and Autism (LIDA) program is a blend of special education and applied behavior analysis coursework. This program has two degree options:

  • Master of Arts (thesis required)

Both degree types provide the academic foundations and supervised field experience for becoming a Board Certified Behavior Analyst (BCBA). Our LIDA program complies with existing standards for professional certification set by the Behavior Analyst Certification Board.

We welcome students from a variety of backgrounds; students do not need to have an undergraduate degree in education. Most students take two courses per semester and graduate with a degree in Special Education in two years.

Evening classes are offered at The Woodlands Center. Summer courses are offered in the late afternoons and early evenings.

PLEASE NOTE: While the majority of this program (42%) can be completed online through SHSU, attendance on campus may still be required for all students.
