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)
- Master of Arts (non-thesis)
Both degree types provide the academic foundations for becoming a Board Certified Behavior Analyst (BCBA). The Behavior Analyst Certification Board, Inc.® has approved the following course sequence as meeting the coursework requirements for eligibility to take the Board Certified Behavior Analyst Examination®. Applicants will have to meet additional requirements to qualify.
We welcome students from a variety of backgrounds; students do not need to have an undergraduate degree in education. Students take two courses per semester and typically 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 a few courses in this program can be completed online through SHSU, attendance on campus is still required for all students.
