Applied Behavior Analysis Concentration

MEd with an ABA Concentration

Use your Applied Behavioral Analysis (ABA) certification to its highest advantage by also earning your MEd in Foundations of Education. In coordination with our Department of Applied Psychology, we offer a MEd with an ABA Concentration. This program attracts special educators, classroom teachers, and non-school-based educators of all types.

Enroll concurrently in the MEd and ABA certificate programs. For students who take our ABA program with an Antioch University New England (AUNE) internship, you can add the MEd with just one additional semester of study. This is a 33-credit, six-semester program. Begin your ABA work in the Fall. Take your education department requirements in the summer of your first year and then finish your ABA program during year two.

Add the MEd to your ABA Certificate

You can also add an MEd to your ABA certificate after you have finished your ABA course work. If you did not choose to pursue your MEd at the time of your application to the ABA program, but you now find you would like an MEd, it’s not too late! You can still apply to the Experienced Educators program and take your education department courses after your ABA course work is finished. ABA students with an AUNE Internship, can earn your MEd in just one additional semester. ABA students without an AUNE internship, can earn your MEd in just two additional semesters.

Please contact the admissions office to learn more about how to add the MEd to your ABA certificate.
