Doctoral Program in Applied Behavior Analysis

Doctoral program in ABA

In 2007, the University of Nebraska Medical Center's Munroe Meyer Institute (MMI) developed a Ph.D. program aimed at providing students with independent study, investigation and research skills in Applied Behavior Analysis that will prepare students for prominent leadership positions in academic, clinical and research arenas.

UNMC's doctoral program is accredited by the Association for Behavior Analysis International (ABAI) and focuses on Applied Behavior Analysis for children, adolescents, and families. Our program’s training model is unique in that didactic instruction is intimately conjoined with supervised research and clinical practice so that our students immediately practice the principles and concepts introduced in the classroom in our clinical programs and research labs.

MMI faculty teach the core courses and supervise the student's clinical and research experiences. This unique program is the first of its kind in the state of Nebraska and the first in the nation to be integrated with a University Center of Excellence on Developmental Disabilities.
