Autism Behavioral Studies Minor
As the autism field grows, future care providers are seeking the proper training and credentials from their undergraduate coursework to give them a competitive edge. The autism behavioral studies minor offers a rich curriculum in autism theories, techniques, treatment and therapies, and is designed for students from relevant majors who require a more in-depth study of autism.
At Saint Joseph’s , students interested in the study of autism have the opportunity to become involved at the University’s Kinney Center for Autism Education and Support. The Kinney Center offers services, resources and information; support and guidance; and tools for public and individual advocacy that contributes to improved autism awareness and care.
SJU students who complete the requirements for the minor in autism studies will be eligible to sit for the Board Certified Assistant Behavior Analyst (BCaBA) examination¨, an important certification for professionals in the field.
The demand for quality health professionals is on the rise. Building upon our existing expertise in this sector, Saint Joseph's University has created a School of Health Studies and Education, which will officially open in the Fall of 2019. Over 40 existing undergraduate, graduate, doctoral and certificate programs, including this one, will be housed in this school.
