Brock University is the only University in Ontario offering a Master of Arts (MA) in Applied Disability Studies. Students can choose to specialize in Applied Behaviour Analysis (ABA) or have no field of specialization. The ABA course sequence is verified by the Behaviour Analyst Certification Board® for completing the course requirements to become a Board Certified Behaviour Analyst®. In addition to course work and practicum placements, the MA program requires the student to complete an original research study and write an MA thesis under the supervision of a key faculty member and a thesis committee. The program is highly competitive with enrolment in the MA program currently limited to 6-10 new students per year. It is geared towards students who are interested in research careers and pursuing a doctoral degree.
