The brain’s all-encompassing structures determine the way we all think and act, so knowledge of the brain-behavior relationship and concepts of neuropsychology are essential for those who work in schools and health care systems. Additionally, because of the impact of technology, neuropsychology is one of today’s fastest growing areas of psychological study.

You will want to take a close look at our graduate certificate in neuropsychology whether you’re a student in the psychological sciences, a practicing educator or mental health provider, or someone who just wants to explore the science of human brain function and understand the concepts of neuropsychology. You will learn from faculty who work as practitioners providing services for individuals with neurologic disorders.
