Trinity Christian College has announced the launch of a new Graduate Studies program, scheduled to begin in fall 2014 at the Palos Heights campus.
Licensed teachers with an LBS I endorsement can enroll in the Master of Arts in Special Education LBS II program. Students can earn a master’s degree, an LBS II Behavior Intervention Specialist endorsement on their teaching license, and Board Certified Behavior Analyst (BCBA) certification in less than two years.
The professional benefits
Students completing the program will be qualified to teach in a variety of educational settings, serving students with low incidence disabilities and students on the Autism Spectrum ages 3-22. In addition, they will be prepared to serve as Behavior Intervention Specialists in a variety of special education or general education settings.
Trinity’s unique program prepares students to test to earn their BCBA certification. Teachers with BCBA certificates can conduct descriptive and systematic behavioral assessments, including functional analyses, and design and supervise behavior analytic interventions.
