DESCRIPTION

The MA in Clinical Neuropsychology focuses on the understanding of behavioural and cognitive deficits that follow brain damage in clinical populations, such as individuals with neurodegenerative disorders (e.g. different types of dementia and multiple sclerosis), epilepsy, tumor, stroke, traumatic brain injury, etc., as well as children with neurodevelopmental conditions. Besides an advanced coverage of core areas in Neuropsychology – Neuroscience, the programme includes units focusing on themes in the frontiers of scientific research (e.g. the Neuroscience of Arts unit). Students are also equipped with the skills and knowledge required to efficiently assess individuals, accurately diagnose their conditions and appropriately develop rehabilitation programmes that can improve their cognitive functioning and quality of life. In doing so, students receive training in specialized neuropsychological assessment procedures. The programme offers its students the opportunity to get a postgraduate British University degree and acquire hands-on experience in Clinical Neuropsychology in the context of a structured Practicum, supervised by specialized staff.

Our MA in Clinical Neuropsychology responds to the increased demand for clinical neuropsychologists in the EU counties, and particularly in South East Europe. Importantly, this program helps students develop general critical, research, analytic and problem-solving skills that can be applied in a wide range of settings.

Graduates with an MA in Clinical Neuropsychology may pursue careers and become employed in various clinical settings and rehabilitation centers, or they may work independently as a practitioner neuropsychologist. Also, they may be employed as consultants for insurance companies or legal services. The MA in Clinical Neuropsychology provides the opportunity to work in multidisciplinary environments, either research-oriented, or industry-oriented, such as Neuromarketing applications. Also our MA can be a stepping stone to pursue a PhD in Clinical Psychology.
