Stand out as an educator with highly specialized credentials, or work toward becoming a Board-Certified Behavior Analyst. This new program is designed to provide specialized coursework for students in education, psychology, communication disorders and related fields. The UCF Graduate Certificate in Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) meets coursework requirements for National Board Certification as a Behavior Analyst. The ABA Graduate Certificate does not directly certify individuals in Applied Behavior Analysis.

Admission is open to those with a bachelor’s degree from a regionally accredited institution or those currently enrolled in or possessing a master’s degree in education, psychology, or a related field. Individuals seeking national certification through the Behavior Analysis Certification Board (BACB) must obtain a master’s degree in applied behavior analysis, education, psychology, or a related field; complete acceptable graduate coursework, complete a defined period of supervised practical experience, and apply for the national board certification exam.
