In this program, you will complete a series of graduate-level classes approved by the Behavior Analyst Certification Board (BACB) and the Fresno Pacific University graduate committee. Coursework will prepare you to assist people to learn new behaviors, increase or reduce existing behaviors and teach individuals when to use specific behaviors in specific instances. The scope of these services ranges from addressing challenging behaviors of an individual to changing the behavior of an entire organization, school or school-community. Successful completion of all coursework and supervised hours prepares you to sit for the BCBA examination.
- Small class sizes

This certification program is especially valuable for individuals pursuing their master’s in school counseling, school psychology and/or special education because of the increasing demand in schools for expertise in developing systematic individual behavior support plans. There is also an increasing demand for BCBA certificate holders in the private sector working with adults and children.
