Behavior analysis is a widely accepted and validated scientific approach to the description and investigation of the environmental arrangements that occasion behavior. More than 60 years of research with proven methods and impressive findings has helped develop the technology now called applied behavior analysis. Over the past five decades, behavior analytic clinical and research advances have led to significant contributions in education programming, and mental health and behavioral health therapies.
The post bachelor's certificate in applied behavior analysis is designed to prepare clinical and educational leaders in the field of evidence-based interventions using behavior analytic theory and techniques.
