Clinical Neuropsychology Concentration

The clinical neuropsychology concentration includes courses, research, and clinical experiences designed to train the students for professional practice in neuropsychology. Clinical neuropsychology involves the application of psychological assessment and intervention to the problems encountered by people with brain injury or illness. The knowledge of brain-behavior functioning and the incorporation of neuropsychological conceptualizations with traditional clinical conceptualizations of functioning are aimed at providing the student with a wider perspective regarding the range of human functioning and disability. The student is able to pursue specific interests in geriatrics, pediatrics, traumatic brain injury, and rehabilitation.

In addition to the core curriculum:

  1. One neuropsychology practicum (800 hours)
  2. A neuropsychology-focused thesis and dissertation
  3. Required classes: Brain and Behavior, Neuropsychological Assessment, Case Analysis and Integration
  4. At least two neuropsychology electives: Cognitive Neuroscience, Rehabilitation Psychology, Neuroimaging and Physiology of Behavior, Advanced Neuropsychology Assessment and Intervention: Children and Adolescents, Advanced Neuropsychology Assessment and Intervention: The Elderly
