Behavior Analysis and Therapy

About BAT

The Southern Illinois University Behavior Analysis and Therapy program is designed for students who want to enter into the field of research and/or clinical work in Behavior Analysis. The program emphasizes empirically based development and application of learning principles to a wide range of situations.

Currently, SIUC is the only school in Illinois and one of only 21 nationally to have their degree program accredited by the Association For Behavior Analysis International (ABAI). Our mission is to educate our graduate students so they will be prepared to conduct research, teach and apply the principles of behavior to assist individuals or organizations, as well as providing them with supervised work under professors who are board certified behavior analysts. Graduates may seek applied work immediately after completing the program, or pursue doctoral training at SIU or elsewhere.
