There are a number of behavior analytic graduate programs within CUNY.
Along with Dr. Alicia Alvero, I am co-director of the Applied Behavior Analysis graduate programs at Queens College, CUNY. We have two programs:
1. Master’s in Applied Behavior Analysis — This program is approved for coursework by the Behavior Analysis Certification Board (BACB) toward becoming a Board Certified Behavior Analyst (BCBA). This 37-credit program includes a number of Applied Behavior Analysis courses beyond what is required by BACB and results in a terminal Master’s degree.

2. Initial Certificate in Applied Behavior Analysis —This program is also approved for coursework by the BACB. This 22-credit program prepares students working toward becoming a BCBA. Click the name of the program for more information.
CUNY also offers a Ph.D. Psychology program through the Graduate Center. The Ph.D. program offers a number of specializations; I am a faculty member in the Behavior Analysis Training Area. Information for this program can be found through the Graduate Center website . Students enrolled in the Ph.D. program complete intensive coursework in basic and applied behavior analysis. The program focuses on research and students work in a lab, like ACE Lab, with the respective mentor. This program is accredited by the Association for Behavior Analysis International . While the program is through the Graduate Center, students enrolled in the program take classes at Queens College and work in research labs at Queens College, like the ACE Lab.
