The mission of the School of Behavior Analysis is to enhance the human condition through behavioral education, research, scholarship and service delivery by facilitating and reinforcing member actions that lead to these outcomes; and enhance the quality of life through outreach and dissemination of behavior scientists and services, based on the following beliefs and values:
The School of Behavior Analysis has three programs accredited by the Association for Behavior Analysis International and all of the core course sequence are also approved by The Behavior Analyst Certification Board Inc.® (BACB®). The BACB is the only credentialing organization for professionals within the discipline. This approval meets coursework requirements for eligibility to take the BCBA® examination. Additionally, the BACB has approved BEH 5251 Intensive Practical Training in Behavior Analysis as meeting the intensive practicum requirements for the experiential component of the BCBA examination application when taken for a total of nine credit hours over the course of three terms. Florida Tech’s degree programs in ABA and the dual program (ABA and OBM) provide students with the requirements to take the BCBA examination immediately on graduation.
