Undergraduate Minor in ABA

Certification

ABA Class

The Behavior Analyst Certification Board® sets forth guidelines and certifies practicing Behavior Analysts. Individuals that are certified at the Bachelor's level are called Board Certified Assistant Behavior Analysts (BCaBA). Students who study ABA can sit for the BCaBA certification exam once they obtain their degree. To become eligible to sit for the exam, students must take approved coursework in ABA and gain supervised field experience.

The Behavior Analyst Certification Board, Inc.® has approved the five-course undergraduate sequence as meeting the coursework requirements for eligibility to take the Board Certified Assistant Behavior Analyst Examination®.

All five of the Undergraduate courses help prepare students to sit for the BCaBA exam. However, the Practicum in ABA course specifically helps students navigate the BCaBA documentation and application process, provides study methods for the exam, and facilitates communication with local community partners to establish opportunities to gain the necessary supervised experience required to sit for the BCaBA exam.
