Course summary

This programme is aimed at those wishing to specialise in applied behaviour analysis. The course is designed to develop advanced theoretical and practical knowledge of the basic principles of behaviour analysis and the application of the principles within clinical and research settings. The programme has been developed by Board Certified Behavior Analysts (BCBA) to meet the professional requirements of the Behavior Analyst Certification Board (BACB). If completed in full with no breaks or time away from study, the course covers the BACB Task List specifications and is recognised by the BACB as providing the content eligibility criteria necessary to sit the full BCBA exam. Students who complete 2 year MSc with practicum will also fulfil the applied work experience requirement and will be in a position to apply to sit the BACB exam when their degree is conferred. It is recommended that students visit the BACB website (www.bacb.com) to become familiar with the professional requirements. Students wishing to can exit the programme after achieving either a PG Certificate or PG Diploma if they don’t wish to undertake the full MSc. The full course leads to a Master’s degree, but it is designed to be flexible to meet the differing needs of our students. For example, you may choose to take a smaller number of modules for a Postgraduate Certificate or Diploma, or for Continuous Professional Development purposes.
