An integrated program leading to a master of science degree in Autism and Applied Behavior Analysis will allow qualified Family Studies majors to be accepted into the master’s program during their senior year.

Admission requirements

  • Overall GPA of 3.20 or higher by the second semester of the junior year
  • Recommendation by the faculty of the Family Studies program, based on the student’s readiness for graduate level work and for building and maintaining high-quality professional relationships with families and young children

Students who have been accepted into the integrated program may take one or two graduate courses from the M.S. program during their senior year. These six graduate credits count toward undergraduate graduation requirements. Upon graduation, the student may apply for matriculation into the master of science in Autism and Applied Behavior Analysis without paying application fees. Accepted students may transfer the six credits taken during their senior year into the master’s program, resulting in significant financial and time savings.
