Emma Eccles Jones College of Education and Human Services

Department of Special Education and Rehabilitation

The Master of Science degree program is designed for persons who desire to improve their teaching or behavior analysis skills. In the Applied Behavior Analysis  with Individuals with Disabilities MS concentration, students may complete coursework that will allow them to take the national Board Certified Behavior Analyst  exam. An MS degree is appropriate for students who are contemplating an advanced degree beyond a master’s degree. Generally, MS theses differ from MEd  creative projects in that they involve experimental research. That is, a study is designed to determine the relationship between an independent variable (i.e., an  intervention or treatment) and a dependent variable (i.e., a target behavior). The intent of such research is to contribute knowledge to the field of special  education. A minimum of 36 credits, including a thesis, is required for the MS degree.
