Southern Illinois University





Come learn from a diverse group of skilled faculty, who are internationally known for their scholarship and teaching excellence. Did you know that the BAT undergraduate program at SIUC was one of the first such degree programs in the entire world? Our master’s program was the first of its kind anywhere, and earned the “Enduring Contribution to the Field for Behavioral Analysis” award from the Association for Behavior Analysis International. There are many schools to choose amongst for a bachelors degree, but many fewer specifically in behavior analysis. And, only one that blends world-class instruction with high energy learning environment – and that is SIUC.
