The online Doctor of Philosophy in Applied Behavior Analysis program prepares students to teach at the university level or work as scientist-practitioners involving business/industry, developmental disabilities, education, and public policy. The curriculum is a research-based program that works toward understanding and improving human behavior by objectively defining and measuring the behavior under question. Students learn to demonstrate a reliable relationship between the procedures employed and the behavioral improvements gained, and they utilize methods of science, including description, quantification, and analysis.
This program includes a residency requirement developed in cooperation with the student's Dissertation Chairperson, to be completed on campus.
