The Department of Counselor Education and Human Services is searching for a tenured associate professor to develop a new Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) master’s program. The new program is projected to accept its first class of students in Fall, 2019.

This partnership provides the department with a greatly enhanced online infrastructure to create a seamless student experience and significantly extend the scope and reach of our graduate programs.
