Neuropsychology

A master's degree allows students to continue their education to more prestigious heights. It is primarily designed to help focus undergraduate students on their career. In the case of a field as specialized as neuropsychology, a master's is the minimum requirement before you can enter the field professionally.

So what is an MSc in Neuropsychology and what does it entail? Neuropsychology is a subcategory of psychology that focuses on human behavior and its relationship to the physical anatomy of the brain. Programs in this field are typically taken alongside work in a clinic to provide real world experience that will be instrumental after graduation. The program itself is usually split into two branches: theoretical and practical. It is typical for all neuropsychology students to study the theoretical side, but only those seeking work in diagnostics and care need to study the practical side.

An MSc in Neuropsychology is beneficial because you will have the ability to really help people. This is a very specialized field that is not very common among medical students, but the need for neuropsychologists is huge. 

Costs for programs in this major vary greatly based of university and length of study. Whether you are studying full or part time, the program usually lasts two or three years. Before enrolling, look into different options to get an idea of the investment cost. 

Careers in neuropsychology, like the master's programs, are split into two categories: theoretical and practical. Common jobs for those pursuing the theoretical side include researchers or educators. On the other side of the spectrum, you can work will patients to help diagnose and heal those with brain injuries. It is also possible to work as a counselor or consultant with practical training. There are many career opportunities with government or individual institutions or with research laboratories.
