Applied Behavioral Analysis Certificate

As licensed behavior analysts, students have the opportunity to work with individuals who have a medical diagnosis of autism, autism spectrum disorders or related disorders in a variety of public and private settings — including schools, homes, day programs, communities, residential and vocational training settings, businesses and related human service agencies.


Notice for Out of State Residents

The Advanced Certificate in Applied Behavior Analysis Post Graduate program at St. Joseph’s College satisfies the requirements for completion of two pathways through an ACS (approved course sequence) for NYS and a VCS (verified course sequence) for the BACB (Behavior Analytic Certification Board). The VCS for the BACB leads to Board Certified Behavior Analyst (BCBA) certification which is recognized internationally. The ACS for NYS leads to NYS Behavior Analyst licensure (NYS LBA) which allows analysts to practice ABA with anyone who has a medical diagnosis of autism spectrum disorder and a prescription for ABA in New York State. For students living and/or practicing ABA outside New York State, St. Joseph’s College recommends that they investigate whether the NYS LBA is applicable/recognized in the state in which they wish to practice. For students living/practicing outside NYS, please refer to the related licensing board guidelines in the state in which you wish to practice for information. You may also use the following link:
