Behavior Analysts apply the principles of learning, motivation, and behavior analysis to the solution of problems of social significance.
Queens College is home to several programs which offer specialization in Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA). We offer an Advanced Certificate in ABA, two Master’s degrees with a concentration in ABA and a doctoral program in Learning Processes and Behavior Analysis through CUNY’s Graduate Center. Although the specific aims of each program vary, they are all rooted in the science of behavior analysis.
