Applied Behavior Analysis & Autism (M.S.) at the Esteves School of Education

The M.S. in Applied Behavior Analysis & Autism (36 credits) prepares students without a master’s degree in a related area to work with people diagnosed with autism.

Coursework for this program is presented entirely online, allowing students to:

  • Complete their program in as little as two years
  • Engage with professionals from around the world in dynamic discussions
  • Receive the same level of personal attention that is customary of Sage’s small, interactive classes and experienced faculty

M.S. in Applied Behavior Analysis & Autism

“Many online programs offer an education, but don’t provide hands-on experience or practicum supervision. At Sage, you can get a rigorous education that covers the concepts and strategies while you fulfill the BCBA practicum requirement. That blend is really important, and there isn’t another program that offers that.”
