An applied behavior analyst studies the science of behavior, both in individuals as well as within organizations or communities. Such analysts work with individuals, families, health care facilities, industries and business, nonprofit and mental health agencies, and more, helping people improve or learn socially significant behavior.
The Becker College applied behavior analysis (ABA) concentration in the psychology program examines the design and application of learning theories and behavioral principles used to understand what motivates human behavior. Students gain skills necessary for working with children and adults diagnosed on the autism spectrum, and assisting certified behavior analysts, who conduct research or create behavior modification programs. Through detailed course work, case study analysis, and field experience, students acquire expertise needed to work in a variety of settings, including group homes, schools, mental health agencies, hospitals, and other agencies working with individuals requiring adaptive living strategies.
