The ABA Master degree

Master ABA degree

2 years

 

This Master’s degree is offered by the OVA Autism Association of Switzerland in partnership with the ESM and is recognized by ABA Switzerland. It is the result of a close link between the company, the school and the associative world and a strong societal commitment signal.

 

The master courses are only in French.

« Beyond the historical challenge of accepting autism and its differences, training comes as a second priority. This Master degree is a human adventure above all. An exploration of the shores of the land of human plurality that one quickly becomes addicted to. After all, what other field can give us, day after day, so much to discover and enjoy? Welcome to this transhumance, welcome to The Master.”

Josef Schovanec, philosopher, writer and official support of the ABA Master
