BECOME A MULTIDISCIPLINARY NEUROSCIENTIST OR COGNITION RESEARCHER

Are you interested in doing research engaged with understanding normal and pathological brain function? Do you want to become a specialist in the field of neurosciences? Our interdisciplinary Master’s programme Neuroscience and Cognition offers you the opportunity to investigate numerous areas of brain functioning that make the neuroscience and cognition field uniquely intriguing and challenging.

This Research Master's in Utrecht trains you to become a neuro, and/or cognition scientist, fully equipped to face the challenges of modern research in the interdisciplinary field of neuroscience and cognition. With ample knowledge of the scope of brain and cognitive functioning, you will be prepared to join an international research team investigating the most complex organ of our body.

WHAT YOU’LL LEARN

During this two-year Research Master’s programme, you will explore the fundamental principles and techniques of neuroscience and cognition. As a Master’s student of Neuroscience and Cognition, you may choose from one of two programme tracks: Experimental and Clinical Neuroscience and Cognitive Neuroscience. During the courses, you are grouped in multidisciplinary teams, together with students from various bachelor backgrounds such as Biomedical Sciences, Neuro- and Cognitive Psychology, Linguistics, or Artifical Intelligence. This provides you with ideal preparation for future research positions in public and private research institutes. After the 10-week introductory course Fundamentals of Neuroscience and Cognition, you will determine an individualised study path, consisting of high quality internships, electives and a writing assignment with the assistance of the track coordinator.
