Courses that make the textbooks come to life!

Curriculum

The curriculum promotes knowledge of contemporary issues in the discipline both formally and informally. First, all instructors are responsible for updating their syllabi each time the course is offered with an emphasis placed on keeping content current, and how emerging findings in the field may alter the readings/discussion in the course. This activity is to some degree modulated by content changes requested by BACB approved coursework. Second, the course dedicated to Professional and Ethical Practices emphasizes current events, issues, and topics as a product of its topical area.

The program contains a course (skeptical thinking) that is designed to promote critical thinking and problem solving skills in the students. At the undergraduate level students are required to complete a course on skeptical thinking, which contains content on the scientific method, discrimination between science and anti-science, and rational decision making.
