David A. Wilder, Ph.D., BCBA-D
The intensive double degree of ABA and OBM (see the description of organizational behavior management in the following degree program) provides graduates with the skills and credentials to work in clinical or human service settings, and in business and industry. It also prepares graduates to work as consultants or in managerial or administrative positions. This degree program is only offered on the main campus in Melbourne.
A minimum of 50 credit hours is required for this program. Requirements include completing 31 credit hours of behavior analysis core courses, practical training (12 credit hours), a thesis, and a final program examination. All courses for a letter grade must be passed with a grade of B or better. The final program examination for all students consists of a multiple-choice examination simulating the Behavior Analyst Certification Board certification examination at the behavior analyst (BCBA) level and covers material from all required behavior analysis courses. The final program examination is administered toward the end of the student’s second spring semester.
