Do you want to learn more about issues relating to the links between consciousness, the brain, and subjective well-being? This English-language master’s program gives you the opportunity to develop your knowledge of these issues at a high level.
About the Programme
The University of Skövde offers a one-year master’s program in Cognitive Neuroscience: Consciousness and the brain taught entirely in English. This is a demanding master’s program for students with a background in cognitive neuroscience or consciousness studies, or in closely related subjects. It may also be suitable as a conversion program for students with an interest in these subject areas and a background in a subject such as philosophy, cognitive science, neuroscience, or experimental psychology. The program is taught in English and provides a sound basis for research and teaching at a higher level within cognitive neuroscience. It requires ongoing, focused studies over the course of a year (two consecutive semesters).
Opportunities for Further Studies
The program began in 2011 but has already achieved strong academic results. After graduating, the majority of students have continued their studies at second- or third-cycle level at various universities, both in Sweden and abroad, including Örebro University, Umeå University, the University of Turku, Ruhr-Universität Bochum, Radboud University, the University of Bern, and University College London.
