The goal of this master's track is to provide insights into recent scientific advances in the field of Neuroeconomics and identify current societal challenges that can benefit from the insights gained by understanding the neurobiological basis of social and economic decision making and the emotional and cognitive processes that support choice. Interdisciplinary fields, such as Neuroeconomics, enable researchers to approach scientific questions from a broader perspective and thereby offer unique advantages that enrich the scientific process by offering multiple levels of analysis. However, this opportunity comes with a specific challenge: understanding the different research methods and theoretical perspectives used across disciplines. To enable students to bridge the disciplines that together compose Neuroeconomics, in-depth training will be provided in Economics, Cognitive Neuroscience and Psychology.... [-]

The Master's programme aims to train students to become experts in their specific subfield of the Brain and Cognitive Sciences but with a clear understanding and appreciation of the contribution made by the other subfields. All students complete a core curriculum next to their chosen direction within the Research Master's programme in Brain and Cognitive Sciences. The core curriculum of this programme integrates various perspectives from within the discipline and includes a weekly journal club and an annual summer school, both of which focus on cutting-edge topics in an intensively interdisciplinary setting.

Disciplinary quality and interdisciplinary insights

The goal is to provide a programme that is equal in disciplinary quality to monodisciplinary programmes but in addition trains you to be aware of and understand the separate contributions and research methods of the large number of disciplines that contribute to the field of cognition and thus not suffer the inadequacies of monodisciplines. This enables you to reflect on, interpret and answer complex questions arising in science nowadays and that arise in our modern society. Interdisciplinary thinking cannot be learned from a book but is a skill which develops from the learning process of combining insights of more than one discipline that can lead to new insights....

Apply knowledge from the field of Brain and Cognitive Sciences to answer important societal questions. Students learn to set up applied experiments, and to translate empirical findings into practical advice.

The brain and mind

Society's interest in the brain and mind has exploded in recent years. This is due in part to increased scientific knowledge about the relationship between cognitive functions, like attention and memory, and performance in every-day life, as well as to technological advances that have provided unprecedented insight into the brain’s workings and new methods that allow continuous monitoring of behavior or cognitive and bodily functions (e.g., internet, wearables, smartphone apps). The primary focus in the curriculum of the master track Brain and Cognition in Society is on how theoretical and methodological knowledge from the field of brain and cognition can contribute to answering societal questions....

Water covers about 70% of our planet and sets it apart from every other planet we know. Water plays an important role in the global climate and is a source of food, minerals, energy and recreation. Aquatic ecosystems teem with organisms, ranging from tiny phytoplankton and zooplankton to coral, fish, and whales. Unfortunately, aquatic ecosystems are also used as ‘dumping grounds' for much of society's waste and are profoundly affected by global change. In the two-year track Freshwater & Marine Biology in the Master’s programme Biological Sciences you will immerse yourself in research ranging from tropical marine biology to the ecology of wetlands ecosystems.

Freshwater & Marine Biology at the UvA is the study for you, if you have a solid background in biology are eager to expand your knowledge and skills in freshwater or marine ecosystems want to learn to address issues of global interest are looking for the freedom to compile your own programme want the advantages of a small-scale programme, where students and staff all know each other and you have the opportunity to become part of the national and international research network of the staff. What does Freshwater & Marine Biology at the UvA have to offer me? ... [-]
