Learning Center Experience
Behling is one of the many faces of public service graduates featured in Kaplan
University’s College of Public
Service videos who answered her calling and became part of the social network of good. The
social network of good is comprised of people who have taken action to help
influence the lives of people or their communities in a positive way.
Graduating from Kaplan University’s Master of Science in Psychology program helped open the door for Catie to take
her board certification exam which helped change her career completely.
She was able to sit for her Board Certified Behavior Analyst® (BCBA) exam.
After passing the BCBA exam, she was eligible to become a supervisor and now
supervises other therapists. *†
Catie feels that Kaplan University prepared
her well for working with families. As a behavior analyst, Catie works with
families and children, helping them meet their needs and bringing a voice to
children unable to speak or communicate. She observes the difference she’s
making in the lives of children who have trouble with simple tasks such by
teaching them how to tie their own shoe or brush their teeth.
Before enrolling in Kaplan University, Catie
was not fulfilled with the job she had. She had
discovered the world of behavior analysts and decided to enroll at Kaplan
University to become one. “I chose Kaplan University because it made sense for
my lifestyle,” she says. “I worked 50 plus hours per week and was still able to
complete my graduate degree because of the flexibility of their program.”
Catie also acknowledges the faculty’s real world experience.
“The faculty was very helpful. Many of them were professionals before becoming
professors in the field,” she says. “Their expertise and knowledge was very
valuable to us as students.” If you would like to learn more about Catie
