Incoming graduate students must have a bachelor's degree from an accredited university, with an overall GPA of 3.0 or higher. Students with lower GPAs may be admitted as probationary or provisional graduate students. Probationary students are automatically admitted as regular degree-seeking graduate students if they earn a 3.0 GPA after having completed the equivalent of one semester of full-time graduate study (nine hours in the fall/spring or six hours in the summer). For admission with full graduate standing, the department recommends that applicants complete 12 credit hours of undergraduate or graduate course work in behavioral analysis, psychology, education, or related fields, and 6 hours in experimental methods, research design, or statistics.
KU accepts applications to the M.A. in Applied Behavioral Science on a rolling basis until July 1, with initial reviews beginning on Dec. 15. To find out if any positions are still available, please contact Liz Barton, academic success coach.
