The Van Loan School at Endicott College announces its inclusion in the “Top 20 Best Schools Offering Applied Behavior Analyst (ABA) Master’s Programs,” a list compiled by AppliedBehaviorAnalysisEdu.org that considered schools from across the globe.
AppliedBehaviorAnalysisEdu.org is an independent online publishing group that provides practicing and future ABAs with “the first and only dedicated resource on state licensing, education options, earning potential, practice domains and more.” They have no affiliation with professional associations, lobbying groups, or government bodies, and exist to create a comprehensive resource that provides unbiased information beneficial to students and professionals in the field.
In considering its Top 20 schools, AppliedBehaviorAnalysisEdu.org reviewed university disclosure pages and data published in the National Center for Education Statistics database to consider criteria like cost, degree variety, admission requirements, and student-teacher interaction.
“At Van Loan, we are dedicated to providing cost-effective and flexible programs, plus individual service to each student,” said Mary Huegel, Vice President and Dean, Van Loan School. “Our staff and faculty work hard to build relationships, from the admissions process through program completion and beyond, providing personal advising and networking opportunities along the way.”
Graduate programs offered by the Institute for Behavioral Studies include: Certificate in Autism; Certificate in ABA (post-graduate); and M.Ed. degrees in Non-Licensure Special Education, Special Education and ABA, and Autism and ABA. Non-residency Doctoral programs are also available.
“Seeing the Van Loan School at Endicott College included with such a distinguished group of graduate programs in Applied Behavior Analysis, out of the more than 250+ programs around the world, is humbling,” said Michael F. Dorsey, Ph.D., BCBA-D, Professor of Education and Director of the Institute for Behavioral Studies. “But at the same time, this recognition validates all the hard work that has gone into building the program over the past 10 years.”
The Institute for Behavioral Studies at Endicott’s Van Loan School provides students with the opportunity to focus on academic curricula related to the study of applied behavior analysis in the context of delivering effective educational services to learners with special needs.
