Mercyhurst offers new program in Applied Behavior Analysis

Students interested in pursuing a graduate certificate in applied behavior analysis can begin coursework in June, thanks to a new offering of the Mercyhurst College Office of Adult and Graduate Programs.

The Behavior Analysis Certification Board recently approved the college as a provider of instruction that meets the education requirements for certification. 

Students may complete the education requirements either as a concentration in the Master of Science in Special Education program or as a Graduate Certificate in Applied Behavior Analysis. All graduate certificate credits may be transferred to the master's degree program.

To achieve full certification, a candidate must complete 225 hours of graduate instruction in a board-approved program, complete the designated number of hours of supervised work experience, and pass the board-certified behavior analyst examination.

Students are responsible for meeting the work experience and exam requirements.

A certificate of completion will be awarded to graduate students who complete the five courses below in sequence: 

EDSP 640 Basic Principles of Behavior 

EDSP 502 Single Subject Research 

EDSP 650 Extended Application: Functional Analysis 

EDSP 501 Extended Application: Applied Behavior Analysis and Classroom Management 

EDSP 660 Advanced Seminar in Applied Behavior Analysis
