Are you interested in understanding the relationship between our thoughts and our bodies, the mind and the brain? Do you want to get hands-on experience of state-of-the-art electrophysiological brain research? This international master’s programme allows you to study these and related issues in depth.
Our one-year master’s programme Cognitive Neuroscience: Mind and Brain is an academically challenging programme for graduates with a background in cognitive neuroscience or consciousness studies. It might also be suitable as a conversion programme for students interested in these fields, with a background in relevant topics such as cognitive science, neuroscience, experimental psychology, philosophy of mind, or biology. The programme, which is taught entirely in English, serves as a strong academic foundation for subsequent research and teaching in cognitive neuroscience. It requires sustained and focused student effort over one year.
During the first half-year semester, successful applicants complete four courses, in topics including cognitive neuroscience, consciousness studies, electrophysiology and statistics. These are taught through a combination of lectures, seminars, workshops and group discussions, several of which are held by internationally leading researchers at the department. During the second semester, students receive one-on-one thesis supervision from a senior faculty member, in order to successfully carry out an empirical or theoretical study in cognitive neuroscience, as the basis for their final thesis.
The programme was established as recently as 2011, but has already achieved a solid placement record. Of the students who have completed their degree, the vast majority have successfully gained entry to other graduate programs or internships at various prestigious institutions abroad and in Sweden, including Max Planck Institutes, University College London, the Karolinska Institute, KU Leuven, École Normale Supérieure, the University of Bern, Radboud University Nijmegen, the University of Luxembourg, the University of Gothenburg, Ruhr-Universität Bochum, Umeå University, Central European University, the University of Turku and Örebro University. More detail is available in several of our student alumni testimonials.
Most senior faculty members conduct research in addition to their teaching duties, some of which takes the form of collaboration on various research projects. For an up-to-date overview of academic life within the department, please see our independent department website. There is also more general (and possibly somewhat out-of-date) information on the official University webpage of our research group.
Admission requires at least a Bachelor’s Degree (equivalent to a Swedish Bachelor’s Degree) in Cognitive Neuroscience or equivalent. A further requirement is proof of skills in English equivalent of studies at upper secondary level in Sweden, known as English course 6 / English B. This is normally demonstrated by means of an internationally recognized test, e g IELTS, TOEFL or equivalent.
