  • Course description
    The broad aim of the MSc in Applied Behaviour Analysis is to give students the opportunity to develop their theoretical and conceptual knowledge in behaviour analysis, develop skills in behavioural assessment, and acquire the ability to work in partnership with clients where they plan and implement programmes that are aimed at establishing, strengthening and/or weakening targeted behaviours. The course is designed for professionals who work (or intend to work) in the caring professions, for example with people with autism and other learning disabilities, in the area of general behaviour management, parent training, community development, and adult mental health.

    The programme aims to provide a foundation that contributes to the preparation of candidates interested in applying for the internationally recognised examination leading to certification in Behaviour Analysis. It will normally be completed over two calendar years to allow time for students to obtain relevant work experience, which is a requirement for certification in Behaviour Analysis.

    Duration and Mode of Attendance

    Part-time for two calendar years, but a third year may be taken to complete the dissertation. Classes will normally be held on Fridays in the first year of study.

    Professional Recognition

    The course content has been approved by the Behavior Analysts Certification Board. (BACB) This enables graduates of this course to take the examination to become a Board Certified Behavior Analyst (BCBA) once they have also fulfilled the work experience requirements specified by BACB.
