    Become a behavior analyst specializing in autism.

    This 39-credit graduate-level program is available to Endicott undergraduate students who plan to become behavior analysts specializing in autism. Students pursue a dual focused program of study that will enable them to take a variety of courses in both autism and applied behavior analysis (ABA) that are required to become a Board Certified Behavior Analyst (BCBA), developing a skill set in the science and application of ABA to individuals with autism spectrum disorder (ASD). 

    Unique program features include a course in collaboration, multiple electives in ASD, and the requirement of a research thesis or professional capstone project. Six credits in psychology, education or ABA (at over level 300) are completed at the undergraduate level, and the graduate degree can be completed in just 15 months.

    The GRE/MAT application requirement is waived.
    A 3.0 GPA throughout your undergraduate course of study must be maintained.
    The application process must be completed by the beginning of the spring semester of the senior year.
