Online Master of Science in Applied Behavior Analysis

Regis College is pleased to offer our Master of Science in Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) degree online with coursework in behavior assessment, treatment evaluation, ethical practices, and more. Commonly associated with the treatment of autism spectrum disorders, applied behavior analysis has diverse applications including, but not limited to, organizational behavior management, early childhood education, and sports performance.

Our online MS in Applied Behavior Analysis has been designed for students from a wide variety of health science backgrounds. It combines research and hands-on experience for students starting out or seeking advancement in the field. And with the rise in the prevalence of autism spectrum disorders, demand for BCBA/BCBA-D certified professionals has increased by approximately 800% from 2010 to 2017, with increases seen in nearly every state.*

The online ABA program at Regis also offers certificate options for current practitioners or non-degree seeking individuals interested in expanding their capabilities.

“The online ABA program is a natural extension of Regis’ strong on-the-ground program. Students in the online program will receive the same proven curriculum that will provide them with the knowledge to become effective behavior analysts.” — Laura M. Burke, ScD, MPH, Dean, School of Health Sciences
