Applied behavior analysis (ABA) is a science of human behavior based on the psychology of how people and animals learn. Behavior Analysts use ABA strategies to teach individuals with autism and developmental disabilities, among others, important life skills.

At Queens College, we have a Master of Arts program and an Advanced Certificate Program (for those who already have an MA/MS) in ABA. By enrolling in one of our programs, you can become a Board-Certified Behavior Analyst (BCBA) and a Licensed Behavior Analyst (LBA) in the State of New York.

Advance your career in ABA at Queens College! After completing our Masters/Advanced Certificate program in ABA, and the requirements from NYS and the Behavior Analytic Certification Board (BACB), you can become a BCBA and an LBA in New York!

At Queens College, we provide:

Opportunities to gain experience working with a team of faculty who have expertise in the areas of autism, developmental disabilities, problem behavior, and parent and staff training.

A comprehensive curriculum that includes coursework in the applied, experimental, and practical application of behavior analysis.

A course sequence that is approved by the Behavior Analyst Certification Board.

Fellowship placements at Queens College through our new on-campus Center for Autism and Developmental Disabilities Evidence-Based Services (QC ACES), or across a number of partnering agencies and school sites that allow you to gain hands-on supervised experience from Board Certified Behavior Analysts and Licensed Behavior Analysts.

Opportunities to conduct research and make conference presentations with guidance from experts in the field.

Need 1 credit to complete the Psychology Major or Minor?

Enroll in a new, 1-credit Psychology course for Spring 2019 

PSY 281.1 (1 credit) – Ethical Issues in Psychology (K. Mangiapanello – instructor)

Students will explore the APA code of ethics with respect to both clinical and research dilemmas with emphasis placed on ethical problems in research applications. Students will read and discuss classic studies that highlight questionable ethical practices in research settings (e.g., Milgram, Zimbardo, etc.).  Learning outcomes will be evaluated through class participation, group activities, written assignments, quizzes and a final examination.

The course is a “zero-cost” class in terms of books/materials as all required material will be provided by the instructor.

New Policy Change for Psychology, as of Spring 2018


Students must enroll in Psych 1073 Lecture AND Psych 1071 Lab.

These are listed as separate courses in CUNYFirst. Be sure to enroll in both.

Psych Majors are required to earn a minimum grade of C in both.

Frequently Asked Questions and Answers:

For Students who already took Psych 107:

  • If you already have a C or better grade in Psych 107:
    • Do not take Psych 1073 & 1071.  This would be considered a “repeat” because you already have credit for the lecture and laboratory course.
  • If you did not earn the minimum grade of C:
    • Psychology Majors are required to earn a C or better in Statistical Methods before taking Psych 213W Experimental
    • Because of the course number change, you must repeat Psych 107 by taking both Psych 1073 AND Psych 1071.

*If you have taken either Psychology 107.1 or 107.3 and did not earn the minimum grade of C, you would need to repeat that course number to get the C grade before you could go on to Psych 213W.

How do I enroll in Psych 1073 and Psych 1071?

Search for the new course numbers on CUNYfirst and add both lecture and lab sections to your “shopping cart”.  The classes are co-requisites (must be taken together), so you need to enroll in both simultaneously. CUNYFirst will not permit registration unless both courses are in the cart.
