The 5th Year Program in Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) was developed as an option for Endicott graduates to complete a 30 credit Master’s Degree in an accelerated format, and, at the same time, to complete both the educational and experiential requirements to sit for the Board Certified Behavior
Analyst (BCBA) examination offered through the Behavior Analysis Certification Board. Non-Endicott graduates are required to complete 6 additional credits in courses related to Applied Behavior Analysis.
The required coursework and practicum experiences begin during the student’s first post-graduate summer term, with all requirements completed within a 15 month time period. The following conditions apply for a student who completes a Bachelor’s degree from Endicott College:
• Waive the GRE/MAT Application Requirement
• Maintain a 3.0 GPA through their undergraduate course of study
• Complete the application process for admission into the Institute for Behavioral Studies by the beginning
of the Spring semester of their Senior year.
