Neuropsychology (jointly with York University) (in English)

Short presentation of the programme:

The programme was designed jointly by the Department of Cognitive Science and Psychology at NBU and City College, the European representative of York University. It offers specialised and extensive training in the field of neuropsychology, as well as basic knowledge of methodology and critical thinking. The programme focuses on the study of behavioural neurobiology with a focus on clinical practice on the one hand, and on in-depth research skills on the other. The training addresses cognitive deficits as a result of brain damage in clinical populations, such as patients with stroke, epilepsy, neurodegenerative diseases, as well as children with neurological developmental deficits. There are two specialisations, applied clinical neuropsychology and basic research cognitive neuropsychology, which follow the same course of study but differ in their practical part. The specialisation in clinical Neuropsychology involves an intensive clinical practicum, while the one in cognitive neuropsychology requires conducting empirical research and a master's degree dissertation defence. The graduates have diverse possibilities of pursuing a career depending on the specialisation chosen, either in clinical practice (e.g. as assistant psychologists) or continuing their studies in a doctoral programme (e.g. DPsych or PhD).
