F. PSY 538 Ethics and Professional Development (3) . Prerequisite: PSY 530 and PSY 534. Discussion of ethical guidelines and professional skills pertinent to research and practice in behavior analysis.
• Several of these courses have prerequisites, so the courses must be taken in the appropriate sequence. PSY 528 lists PSY 221 or PSY 504 as a pre- or co-requisite; these courses are the undergraduate (PSY 221) and graduate (PSY 504) labs in behavior analysis. If graduate students have not passed PSY 221 at JSU or an equivalent lab at another university, they are required to enroll in PSY 504 Graduate Behavior Analysis Lab prior to or in the same semester that they enroll in PSY 528 Applied Behavior Analysis I.
• The six courses required by the BACB® are not offered every semester. We offer PSY 504, PSY 511, PSY 521, and PSY 528 every fall; we offer PSY 504, PSY 529, and PSY 530 every spring; and we offer PSY 504 and PSY 538 every summer.
