Department of Behavior Analysis

The Department of Behavior Analysis offers graduate and undergraduate degree programs on the UNT campus in Denton, as well as a graduate certificate program for distant professionals interested in continuing their behavior analysis education. A faculty of 6 nationally recognized full-time faculty, supported by outstanding adjunct faculty specializing in a variety of sub-fields, offer students a broad range of experiences in the classroom, research laboratories and applied settings.

The department's Master of Science degree program was the first graduate program in the nation to be accredited by the Association for Behavior Analysis. The program has attracted students from Brazil, Canada, China, Columbia, England, Iceland, Japan, Mexico, and Norway as well as from 17 states in the U. S. Whether alumni go on to pursue a doctoral degree or assume professional positions in the community, they are consistently viewed in their new settings as highly accomplished Behavior Analysts.

The department’s Bachelor of Science degree in Applied Behavior Analysis was the first in the nation. The curriculum includes intensive training in the principles and application of applied behavior analysis, in the context of a broad general education.

Due to the increasing demand for applied Behavior Analysts (or applied behavior analysis practitioners), in 1999 the department developed a sequence of internet courses. These courses allowed professionals to continue their behavior analysis education as well as meet the academic requirements for professional certification by the Behavior Analysis Certification Board.

The department was instrumental in founding the Texas Association for Behavior Analysis and remains its headquarters. Its faculty maintain excellent relations with Behavior Analysts at other universities and in the public and private sector.

In 2003, the Department of Behavior Analysis received a research endowment from the estate of Beatrice H. Barrett, Ph.D. In 2004, the department established the Beatrice H. Barrett Research Program in Neuro-Operant Relations.
