The Neurodiagnostics and Sleep Science (NDSS) bachelor’s degree program is offered by UNC-Charlotte’s Department of Kinesiology, with collaborative coursework offered by UNC School of Medicine Department of Allied Health Sciences. The program prepares graduates with the knowledge, competence, and adaptive skills to fulfill educational, professional and leadership positions in the field. The NDSS degree is offered via distance education. Students will complete a practicum during the summer and an internship during the final semester of the program. The practicum and internship will be set up at a facility local to the student when possible and must be approved by the NDSS program director.
