MMI and University of Nebraska at Omaha Psychology faculty jointly offer a Masters degree in Psychology with a specialization in applied behavior analysis. Coursework in the ABA program addresses content areas required for licensure as a mental health practitioner and national certification as a behavior analyst. Upon completion of the program, students will have obtained necessary prerequisites for Provisional Licensure as a Mental Health Practitioner (PLMHP) pending approval of the student’s graduate transcript by the licensure board of the Nebraska Department of Health and Human Services. With an additional 3,000 supervised experience hours after the completion of the ABA masters degree, students may sit for a licensing exam to be a Licensed Mental Health Practitioner (LMHP) in the State of Nebraska. Practitioners holding the BCBA and/or the LMHP typically work in clinical mental health settings, inpatient and outpatient clinics in hospitals, and sometimes in schools.
Details of the program and application information can be found at the University of Nebraska at Omaha's Master of Arts Degree in Psychology: Applied Behavior Analysis Program (ABAP).
