The Applied Behavior Analysis graduate certificate is a specialized credential for professionals in behavior analysis, education and psychology. The sequence consists of six courses that have been approved by the BACB™ to meet the coursework requirements needed to sit for the BCBA™ exam.


Supervision option (SE/ABA)

In addition to the certificate we offer a 1-3 credit supervision option for students who do not have a BCBA supervisor on site where they work.

This is an option for students seeking supervision and mentorship in the development of applied skills in behavior analysis consistent with the standards of the BACB, with coursework at USJ or another program for part or all of the required hours.
