Can you tell me more about what I need to do to be considered for Project BEES?
Thank you for your interest in becoming a Project BEES scholar at Georgia State University! We are excited to hear from you.
Scholars are invited to apply for one of two degrees:
Students in this track will receive a masters of science in applied behavior analysis and complete a behavior analysis certification board approved course sequence in a four semester degree. Students completing this degree track do not need special education licensure, but will receive a preschool endorsement.
Students in this track will have a teaching license upon entering and will receive a preschool endorsement to that license. Students in this track will also be able to pursue their BCBA and will take courses in that course sequence.
What are my next steps?
Interested scholars should apply first to the degree program they are interested in. Priority deadline for both programs is February 1, however students applying to the M.S. in ABA program must apply by February 1, and students applying to the M.Ed in Early Childhood Education can apply until June 15.

Will I be admitted as a Project BEES scholar?
Competitive applicants for the grant funded project will have a undergraduate GPA of 3.0 or higher and GRE scores in the 50th percentile or higher. Interested applicants will be selected from the submitted applications for either program, so you may be admitted to Georgia State but not funded under this project. The five most competitive students from each degree program will be funded per year, and notification of funding will come after notice of admission.
