For the third consecutive year, Arcadia’s online Master’s in Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) has been ranked nationally by the Applied Behavior Analysis Program Guide as one of the best online programs.

Offered through the University’s School of Education, the program was ranked in the “Top 15 Best Applied Behavior Analysis Online Programs 2020” list. Arcadia was the only Pennsylvania school to receive the distinction this year.  

Arcadia’s program was distinguished for its concentrations in Behavioral Consultation in Homes, Schools and Communities; Ethics and Professionalism; and ABA Training and Supervising Human Service Staff. The list noted that the University’s 36-credit hours program helps “students learn to apply ABA principles across a variety of settings and individuals.” The rankings also praised the practicum opportunity for students planning to take the Board Certified Behavior Analyst (BCBA) exam.

The ABA program develops the professional expertise and consultative skills necessary to support youth and adults with autism, conduct and oppositional defiant disorders, and depression.
