DENTON (UNT), Texas -- The Society for the Advancement of Behavior Analysis has awarded the University of North Texas Department of Behavior Analysis its 2012 Enduring Programmatic Contributions Award for having established a tradition of leadership in teaching, service and scholarship.

"We are honored to accept this award, which reflects the department's continuing positive impact on the field of behavior analysis," said Rick Smith, associate professor and department chair.

UNT's Department of Behavior Analysis was the nation's first stand-alone department of behavior analysis, and developed the first graduate program in the nation to be accredited by the Association for Behavior Analysis International. UNT's Department of Behavior Analysis also developed the first undergraduate degree in applied behavior analysis and the first online program for professionals seeking certification by the Behavior Analyst Certification Board. UNT's Department of Behavior Analysis was instrumental in founding the Texas Association for Behavior Analysis, and houses the organization's headquarters.

The department has a longstanding reputation for excellence in its work in autism and related fields, behavior and cultural analysis, applied behavior analysis with animals, and more. The department offers graduate and undergraduate degree programs, as well as a graduate certificate program for professionals interested in continuing their education.
