The Applied Behavior Analysis program of Rutgers University is perfectly aligned with GSAPP’s mission to train professionals who can integrate scientific knowledge with innovation in the delivery of clinical care that helps individuals and the local, national, and global communities where they live. Students have the opportunity to learn through coursework as well as real world experiences. Graduates will be well-educated, qualified, and competent direct-service behavior analysts and clinical researchers who have a special commitment to direct community involvement and to underserved populations.
The foundation is based on knowledge of the scientific basis of ABA and the values our school embraces--civic and global citizenship; social justice and helping the underserved; and cultural diversity. It is our expectation that these values will become the lens through which students view human interactions and will be emphasized in their supervision groups.
The applied emphasis of the program includes opportunities for students to receive training in socially significant areas of behavior analysis, participate in practicum, and have opportunities to integrate their didactic and applied learning experiences. This program will prepare graduates to become BCBAs who can independently practice ABA or continue to obtain their doctorate in behavior analysis.
Students will be required to integrate their learning through participation in supervised fieldwork/practicum in ABA. Additionally, graduate students will demonstrate their clinical and research proficiency through a capstone project or thesis.
- Students who enter our program will receive a 42-credit Masters in Applied Behavior Analysis degree, which includes instruction in foundation knowledge of the scientific basis of ABA as well as education and training in applied areas of behavior analysis.
