Students in Simmons’ Master of Science in Behavior Analysis program are committed to using the principles of applied behavior analysis to make a difference in the lives of those around them. When selecting students, Simmons seeks candidates who are passionate about their work and committed to professional excellence.
The BehaviorAnalysis@Simmons Admission Committee reviews applications holistically, striving to evaluate a candidate’s ability, aptitude, and promise for academic success in the program and professional success upon graduation. We strongly recommend that applicants with an undergraduate GPA below a 3.0 reflect upon their academic experience in their application essay.
