Are you interested in the basis of consciousness, the mechanisms of learning or the genetics of behaviour? In this programme, you study the brain, cognition and behaviour from different perspectives.
The main focus of this Research Master is to train students to become independent researchers. For this purpose, a large proportion of the programme is devoted to two research projects in which the students are embedded in successful research groups to conduct their own research.
The programme offers three tracks:
Animal and Human Behaviour (B-track);
Cognitive Neuroscience and Cognitive Modelling (C-track);
Molecular and Clinical Neuroscience (N-track).
You will become an expert in one of these fields. However, because of the integrated courses and links between these tracks, you will also get a unique and truly multi-disciplinary training.

Cognitive psychology and psychophysiology study cognitive functioning (memory, learning, perception, etc.) of healthy people.
In the master track Cognitive Psychology and Psychophysiology you study – amongst others – these questions. You will learn about the latest theories and insights in this broad area, and you will get hands-on experience with research tools such as advanced reaction time analyses, EEG and TMS. You will put all this knowledge into practice during your master's research project. In the programme, we put a strong emphasis on applications of all the theory you study: over and over again, we will ask “how can we use this knowledge in everyday life?”
How can psychology contribute to solving conflicts between groups, to a better environment, or health?
The programme Applied Social Psychology concerns the relationship between the everyday behaviour of 'normal' individuals and its large-scale influence of that behaviour on society and organisations. You can choose one of the specializations or compose your own programme within ASP.
The social psychologist studies, explains and influences behaviours 'in the street' and in groups, in companies and organisations, on the internet and in large crowds.
