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)
- Master of Education (non-thesis)
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.
Priority Deadline: March 9
