Bachelor’s Programs with a BACB-Approved Course Sequence that Meets the Requirements for BCaBA® Certification

Many states that license assistant applied behavior analysts now require the BCaBA® (Board Certified Assistant Behavior Analyst) certification for licensure or accept it as a pathway to licensure. Even in states that do not license assistant applied behavior analysts, the BCaBA® is often required for services to be eligible for insurance reimbursement. The credential is also a common requirement for employment.

Capella University - MS in Applied Behavior Analysis
BehaviorAnalysis@Simmons - MS in Behavior Analysis online. No GRE required. BACB®-Approved Course Sequence.

It takes a bachelor’s degree from a program that meets the curriculum requirements set by the Behavior Analysis Certification Board (BACB) to earn the BCaBA®. Though the bachelor’s degree can be in any discipline, it is most commonly in psychology, behavior analysis, or education.

The most certain way to make sure a program meets the curriculum requirements is to select a bachelor’s degree with coursework that has been pre-approved by the BACB. Programs with an Approved Course Sequence have a pre-approved curriculum, as do programs with ABAI-BAAB Accreditation (Association for Behavior Analysis International-Behavior Analysis Accreditation Board).

A program without a pre-approved course sequence or ABAI-BAAB accreditation may still include curriculum that meets eligibility requirements for the BCaBA® Exam, but it would need to undergo a syllabus evaluation through the BACB to make sure it meets board standards.

Here you will find only the bachelor’s programs that have already been reviewed by the BACB and found to meet the curriculum standards necessary to sit for the BCaBA® Exam.

This list features both on-campus programs and online programs available through schools in each state. Online programs are usually available to students throughout the county and often have no residency requirements.
