Bachelors in Neuroscience. Psychomotricity encompasses all motor functions that are directly or indirectly related to thought, psychology and brain functions. It is a discipline as much as a current of thought which puts forth the connection between the body and the psyche. Psychomotricity is upstream of abstraction, it exists when thought needs the body, and its tonic imprint to conceive and develop. Using various techniques, "psychomotricity" tends to develop harmony between a person's body, affect, and intelligence. Thus by "psychomotricity", we tend body and mind towards an objective of harmony, both internal through serenity and external through adaptation. The psychomotor is a health professional practicing in infants, children, adolescents, adults and the elderly who have difficulty adapting to the world because of disturbed perceptual-motor integration. The psychomotor is therefore addressed to a population of different ages, for prevention, screening, diagnosis and especially therapy. Some of its interventions may also be educational, especially in the context of early childhood. The course of psychomotricity of the International University of Casablanca is a training that is prepared in 3 years of studies, spread over 6 semesters. The system of studies is based on a modular system of education according to the LMD system in force in national higher education and a combination of theory and practice (tutorials, internships in healthcare and school). ADMISSIONS To be a psychomotor, the person must be above all in his / her body and mind, be empathetic, be able to give attention, be attentive to the other, be... [-]

Bachelor in Neuroscience

Neuroscience, the study of the nervous system, advances the understanding of the biological basis of thought, emotion, and behavior. [+]

To understand the brain is to understand behavior. Neuroscience, the study of the nervous system, advances the understanding of the biological basis of thought, emotion, and behavior. Neuroscience includes the study of brain development, sensation and perception, learning and memory, movement, sleep, stress, aging, neurological and psychiatric disorders, molecules, cells, and genes responsible for nervous system functioning. Neuroscientists use a wide range of tools and approaches to examine molecules, nerve cells, neural networks, brain systems, and behavior. From these studies, they learn how the nervous system develops and functions normally and what goes wrong in neurological disorders. Major Neuroscience is an interdisciplinary field that combines biology, psychology and chemistry to investigate how the nervous system generates the complex experience and behavior of humans and other animals while being shaped in turn by the organism’s engagement with the environment. Drawing most heavily on the offerings of its home departments of psychology and biology, but with additional courses in chemistry, mathematics, and computer science, the neuroscience major offers excellent preparation for post-graduate education and careers in the interdisciplinary field of neuroscience. Major requirements The major consists of at least 14 courses, 4 of which must be at the 300-level or above, including the Senior Seminar in Neuroscience. [-]

Bachelors in Neuroscience. Psychology is both an applied and academic field that studies human thoughts, feelings and actions as well as animal behavior. The Psychology Department is committed to supporting the college mission of education around, race, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, and other categories as they relate to human behavior and functioning. Modern psychology is broad and diverse in terms of both topics and methods. The faculty and course offerings in Wheaton's Psychology Department reflect that breadth and diversity. We offer courses in animal behavior, cognition, developmental psychology, personality, social psychology, neuroscience, health, forensic, clinical and multicultural psychology. Students can take courses in both quantitative and qualitative research methods. Psychology is interdisciplinary by nature. The Psychology Department at Wheaton has connections with the natural sciences, the humanities, and other social sciences. The Psychology Department has a number of experiential opportunities available for our students in field practicum and internship opportunities. Students can collaborate with faculty on research in psychology laboratories. Students who major in psychology work in a wide variety of settings including schools, human services organizations, research labs, and corporations. They can have careers in marketing, human resources, biomedical research, criminal justice and mental health. Learning Outcomes 1. Psychology majors will have a historical-critical perspective on fundamental concepts of psychology as a science including its similarities to and differences from other sciences. 2. Psychology majors will be familiar with and have a basic understanding that will enable them to employ these diverse research methods in the field of psychology.... [-]
