At UNH Manchester, hands-on learning is central to the teaching philosophy, which is why psychology and neuropsychology students graduate prepared for success in the world. A survey of UNH Manchester's 2019 psychology and neuropsychology graduates found that 100% of participants were employed or enrolled in graduate or medical school within six months of graduation.
Virtual Psychology & Neuropsychology Info Session
Wednesday, Feb. 3 | 5 - 6 p.m.
Join us for a virtual info session on February 3 at 5 p.m. to discover how UNH Manchester's psychology and neuropsychology programs give you the research skills and hands-on learning to prepare you for your career or further education. The session will be led by Daniel Seichepine, Ph.D., who has taught psychology and neuropsychology at UNH Manchester for seven years. Since joining the faculty, his passion for the subject has been a beacon of inspiration for students. Seichepine is a clinical neuropsychologist who has published several peer-reviewed publications on sports-related mild traumatic brain injury, Parkinson’s disease and normal aging.
His current research examines the long-term effects of repetitive sports-related mild traumatic brain injuries on cognition, mood and behavior. Central to the learning experience, Seichepine actively involves his undergraduate students in research—several of whom have had their findings published. He has been featured on local news outlets to talk about a variety of neurological conditions, from dementia to concussions to addiction. Seichepine was awarded UNH Manchester’s 2018 Excellence in Teaching Award as well as the 2018 New Investigator Award from the International Society for CNS Clinical Trials and Methodology.
