Neuropsychology Concentration

The Clinical Psychology Program offers a 5-year Neuropsychology Concentration that tailors the student’s program of study through elective courses, practice field experiences, and research and scientific inquiry to concentrate in the area of clinical neuropsychology. The Neuropsychology Concentration is based on the APA Division 40 and Houston Conference Guidelines with the goal of providing students with training that will serve as a foundation for internship and post-doctoral neuropsychology training. Students do not receive a neuropsychology designation, or a separate degree in neuropsychology. Students who elect the Neuropsychology Concentration will earn a degree in Clinical Psychology, which appears on all transcripts and diplomas. Students in the Clinical Psychology Program apply to the Neuropsychology Concentration in the first year of study; acceptance into the Program does not guarantee acceptance into the Neuropsychology Concentration.

    • Introduction to Neuropsychological Assessment
    • Clinical Neuroscience
