Do you ever question why someone does certain things? You've probably thought about what has happened in their lives to make them have that quality or behavior. If you've done this, then you've already gotten started on a track to become a behavior analysist. Our degree allows you to become prepared to work with individuals with autism, developmental disabilities, and beyond. You'll gain experiences working with these individuals, analyzing their behaviors, then study factors that may have influenced the behavior.

It is unusual for an undergraduate program to study behavior analysis, and that's why we're especially proud of ours. You'll get an education that prepares you for graduate studies or the workforce. Our students are prepared to provide services to clients with a variety of needs. Get started on our unique and enriching major!

In the behavior analysis program, students have the opportunity to participate in high-level research and hands-on experiences. The experience I had through the Campus Autism Program combined with the rigorous coursework set me up for success both in graduate school and my career.
