Online MA in ABA


ABA Practicum

The USF Online MA in ABA program requires students to complete experience hours under the supervision of a Board Certified Behavior Analyst (BCBA). USF follows the Concentrated Supervised Fieldwork Requirements of the Behavior Analyst Certification Board.

Students are required to accrue 1,500 total hours of Concentrated Supervised Fieldwork experience. To graduate in five semesters, students need to accrue about 20 hours per week of supervised experience hours.  This includes restricted and unrestricted activities.

Applicants are required to secure a practicum site and supervisor before applying to the Online MA in ABA program.  Once admitted, all supervisors must be approved by the USF ABA faculty in order to provide supervision.
