Applied behavior analysis careers are varied and well-paying! The Florida Tech programs in Behavior Analysis have many approved Intensive Practicum Sites allowing students to contact a wide diversity of practical training experiences. Because of this diversity coupled with the strong academic preparation, agencies around the world are very motivated to recruit and hire our graduates, sometimes fighting each other to acquire our graduates. Our graduates are employed in diverse applied behavior analysis careers; some work in schools, some work in day treatment centers, and some have private practices. Our graduates have been hired with a range of salary from $35,000 to $85,000 with their Master’s degree!
While our master’s students are employed all around the globe, our newly minted doctoral graduates have also successfully obtained post-doctoral fellowships at prestigious institutions such as the University of Nebraska Medical School / Munroe Meyer Institute while others have been hired as faculty members at universities. Still others have taken positions as consultants or program directors. Starting salaries for doctoral-level behavior analysts range from $65,000 -$100,000, depending upon type of position and geographic location.
