ABSC 931 The Analysis of Verbal Behavior
An advanced graduate seminar on verbal behavior, grounded in behavior-analytic principles, concepts, and theory. Although focused on the verbal behavior of the proficient speaker, it also covers verbal behavior's evolutionary and biological bases, the development and structure of verbal behavior, the training and remediation of verbal behavior, and critiques and rebuttals to the analysis (e.g., Chomsky's.) Prerequisite: ABSC 800, advanced coursework in psycholinguistics or linguistics, or instructor permission.
Doctor of Philosophy in Behavioral Psychology
The Department of Applied Behavioral Science offers a curriculum through which students learn how to examine and address problems of social importance across the lifespan. Students receive training in the application of behavioral science to improve the human condition through prevention and intervention. The department’s doctoral program in behavioral psychology satisfies coursework requirements for Board Certification in Behavior Analysis and, in most states, licensure as a behavior analyst. It does not satisfy requirements for licensure in psychology.
