Psychology: Clinical Neuropsychology, 2018-2019
This master specialisation is grounded in the neurosciences relevant to clinical neuropsychology with a strong focus on evidence-based practice. This means that in the programme students are taught to focus on the conscientious, explicit and well-judged use of current best scientific evidence in making decisions about the care of individual patients in terms of diagnostics, prognostics and interventions (the ‘scientist-practitioner’-model).
The specialisation is attractive not only if you wish to become professionally active in the field of clinical neuropsychology, for instance as a Health Care psychologist, Clinical Neuropsychologist or Clinical Psychologist. The programme is also suitable if you are interested in a scientific career. You are involved in the neuropsychological assessment, treatment and guidance of patients with brain damage.
The curriculum of 60 EC offers a variety of courses and a supervised master thesis. The specialisation consists of:
- 4 mandatory courses (20 EC)
- thesis (20 EC)
- practical internship (10 EC) ánd 10 EC elective course(s) or a clinical practical internship (20 EC)
At the very start of your study year all master’s students enrol for all courses at the Master’s introduction and course enrolment day. At this day the attendance of first year master’s students in Psychology is required if they start with a master’s programme.
