Bachelor of Science Degree in Psychology - Applied Behavior Analysis

Behavior psychology degrees

Kaplan University’s online Bachelor of Science in Psychology in Applied Behavior Analysis is designed to provide you with the foundational skills to address complex behaviors, solve social problems, and responsibly moderate relationships between individuals, family members, or people in the community. Use of applied behavior analysis methods is widely recognized as an effective method of treating those with behavior disorders, such as children with autism and those who are affected by trauma.

  • "Behavior analysis" refers to the study of how people learn. "Applied" means using psychology rather than researching it.

‡The BACB verifies university training as meeting its eligibility requirements; it does not accredit university programs. Although certain programs at Kaplan University are designed to prepare students to take various certification or licensing exams, the University cannot guarantee the student will pass those exams. In some cases, field experience, additional coursework, and/or background checks may be necessary to take or to successfully pass the exams. Students should research the requirements in the state in which they intend to seek employment.
