USF Board Approves New PhD Program in ABA
The USF Board of Governors has approved a new doctoral program in Applied Behavior Analysis that will build on the existing ABA master’s program with its high academic standards, emphasis on research and practice, and network of community partners.
“There is a great need for doctoral level behavior analysts in leadership, training, research, and management positions,” said Dr. Raymond Miltenberger, Director of USF ABA programs. Beginning Fall 2013, five students with a master’s degree in ABA will be accepted each year for the 54 credit hour program.
With only two similar programs in Florida – and ABA doctoral programs around the nation only accepting 10 - 20 percent of applicants – the graduates are expected to be in high demand, both in community agencies and schools, and in colleges and universities with ABA programs.
