Biology

Master-level studies involve specialized study in a field of research or an area of professional practice. Earning a master’s degree demonstrates a higher level of mastery of the subject. Earning a master’s degree can take anywhere from a year to three or four years. Before you can graduate, you usually must write and defend a thesis, a long paper that is the culmination of your specialized research.

Biology is the study of all living things and how they convert and consume energy in order to survive and maintain stability. Areas of biological study are classified by organism type and complexity as well as the method of study.

France is currently among the 20 best performing countries in terms of the economy due to their excellent results-oriented higher education learning. Most of the courses at universities are offered in the French language. France has 60 public and 100 private universities.

MoNeuCog is an elite master's level program in the modeling of neuronal and cognitive systems, which is designed to educate the interdisciplinary researchers of tomorrow. Introduction

Through its innovative approaches to mentoring, MoNeuCog aims to foster natural curiosity and autonomy in students. The goal is to develop active researchers at the interface of applied mathematics and cognitive sciences.

Objectives

Graduates will have acquired the basic knowledge of mathematics, statistics, computer science, biology and cognitive science needed to model neurocognitive systems.Moreover, students will have been able to specialize in a domain of interest thanks to the projects conducted in UCA laboratories. All these laboratories are members of the C@UCA core program "Cognitive systems, normality and pathology of the human brain, computational neuroscience". The areas of specialization include medicine, mathematics, linguistics, physics, experimental economics, psychology, computer science, neurophysiology and chemistry of olfaction. Throughout the program, students will be confronted several times with interactions in all these fields, especially in group work. This will give each student the unique opportunity to progressively make individual choices, acquire autonomous thinking and work in an interdisciplinary setting. International mobility and Research & Development work in private companies will also be encouraged through internships.... [-]
