Arcadia’s online Master’s in Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) is among the top “20 Best Online ABA Master’s Degree Programs 2021” list released by the Applied Behavior Analysis Program Guide.

Arcadia University’s ABA program is specifically designed to help students meet the requirements for the Board Certified Behavior Analysts (BCBA) exam and is adopting the new 5th Edition Task List seven-course sequence approved by the Behavior Analyst Certification Board. An ABA master’s degree program at Arcadia University provides education in evidence-based intervention within Psychology and Education. 

Arcadia offers both a Master of Education with a concentration in Applied Behavior Analysis and a Graduate Certificate option of study. Both help to develop and enhance the understanding and effective use of various practices to support professionals who need experience in understanding and modifying behavior. This includes behavioral principles, data analysis, applications with children and youth with behavior problems, ethics, and consultation skills necessary to work with other professionals and adults in community settings.

This is the fourth straight year that Arcadia’s ABA program has been nationally recognized and ranked. This year, the ABA Program Guide looked at regionally and nationally accredited universities and colleges and ranked them according to affordability. The guide focused on online programs and programs that prepare students to take the Board Certified Behavior Analysts BCBA exam that have graduate tuition of less than $40,000 a year.
