Doctor of Philosophy in Applied Behavior Analysis

Program Details

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.
