ABA Professor Interviews

ABA Professor Interview Series

You’re probably drawn to the field of applied behavior analysis for the simple fact that you find the application of behavioral psychology to be a lot more interesting than theory alone. You’re fascinated by what you’ll be learning from the literature and in the classroom, of course, but where the rubber meets the road with the principals of behavioral modification being put to work to improve people’s lives is really where all the action is.

For similar reasons, as you you’re considering your degree options and weighing the benefits of one program over another, you’re interested in hearing directly from the professors and other instructors you’ll be learning from. You can find out a lot about a program by reading up on it, but a few words from one of the professors or department heads can really give you a feel for some of the more nuanced aspects of the program, and a little familiarity with the people who teach it.

In this series, we’ll be talking to professors and other faculty members heading up ABA master’s, doctorate and bachelor’s programs at the nation’s premier colleges and universities. In 2017, we recognized each one of these schools for offering exceptional value and quality as we put together lists of the programs we most highly recommend to prospective students:


Now we’re reaching out to faculty at these schools again to see if they’d be interested in participating in a short Q&A. We hope the responses we’ll be getting will offer that little extra insight that future students are looking for to feel confident about selecting the programs that will prepare them to enter professional practice as ABAs and BCaBAs.

Join us as we bring you this series of interviews throughout 2018 and 2019. Check back regularly for new ideas and insights as we continue to update this page with fresh interviews with the best and brightest in the field of ABA.

If you’re a faculty member in a department offering degrees in ABA and would like to participate, we’d love to hear from you. Contact us here.
