Concentration in Behavior Analysis
Behavior analysts understand that both biology and environment influence behavior. We study both human and nonhuman behavior to address socially significant issues such as health promotion, substance abuse treatment, education, animal training, employee performance and workplace safety, and the intensive treatment of pervasive developmental disabilities, including autism spectrum disorders.
The UAA Psychology Department offers a Behavior Analyst Certification Board (BACB)® approved coursework sequence. This approved coursework sequence prepares students to sit for the Board Certified Assistant Behavior Analyst® (BCABA®) examination to earn an internationally recognized certification. Concentration coursework also prepares students who seek to find employment in agencies that provide behavior-analytic services or those who seek graduate education in Behavior Analysis or Experimental Psychology.
