STARKVILLE, Mississippi—Mississippi State University’s Department of Counseling, Educational Psychology, and Foundations marks the first milestone in the graduation of 11 students from the master’s of Applied Behavior Analysis program .
“We are very proud that our first cohort of ABA master’s students at MSU graduated this semester,” said Hallie Smith, ABA program coordinator. “As teachers, it is so rewarding to see them complete their training process with us and to see how much they have grown and learned during their two years in the program.”
According to Smith, ABA faculty look forward to seeing graduates become independent professionals as they grow from students to colleagues in the field of behavior analysis.
Launched in the fall 2020 semester, the ABA program provides educational training and experience for students and helps prepare them for practice in real-world settings. The program also leads to certification as a board certified behavior analyst and licensure. The first cohort includes 11 students from across the state.
Graduates include (by hometown):
NEW ALBANY—Lindsey Davis and Donna Graham
