Thank you for your interest.

¨ CSUN Psychology department currently offers undergraduate and graduate training in Applied Behavior Analysis.

¨ Although we previously had a very successful Post-MA BCBA program for candidates with relevant MA degrees, we are no longer offering this program.

¨ We are now focusing on our graduate MS program in Applied Behavior Analysis within which students take the BCBA course-series.

 

Undergraduate Psychology coursework to meet BCaBA educational requirements

http://www.csun.edu/~bcba/index_files/BCaBaUndergraduate.html

¨ At this time, CSUN’s BACB® approved undergraduate coursework for the BCaBA, meets the 3rd Edition Task List and not the 4th Edition.  You can identify the additional requirements for the 4th Edition, compared to the 3rd Edition, by reviewing page 4 of the Fourth Edition Coursework Requirements Document (http://bacb.com/documents/), reviewing the table below, and contacting the BACB® directly  by going to http://bacb.com/contact-us/

· Due to the high student demand for behavior analytic coursework and limited resources at CSUN, the CSUN Psychology Department has not been able to increase the coursework hours to meet the new BACB® requirements.
