A masters degree in neuropsychology teaches students on methods of designing and conducting clinical research, studying psychotherapy as well as imparting counseling techniques to students. For some universities offering the program, classes that teach students on the brain anatomy and function as well as the diagnosing problems in mood, memory and personality disorders may be taught.

A masters degree in neuropsychology prepares students to take up careers as: medical researchers, teachers and as counselors. These jobs are available in government agencies, private practices and research laboratories. Neuropsychology is a branch of psychology and focuses on the relationship between the brain and human behavior. Therefore, the students are expected to have a deep understanding of the brain function and anatomy. Observation of people and conducting research on various research questions is the most preferred way of learning human behaviors and finding solutions to identified problems.

Clinical experience is often mandatory before students graduate from this masters program. The program takes either two or three years for completion depending on if one is studying full time or part time. On clinical practice, the students often work with patients who have suffered brain injuries. Since the program is highly specialized, a masters degree is the minimum requirement before they can venture into the field.
