Part time Master's Degree in Biology

See Part time Masters Programs in Biology 2018

Biology

A masters is earned after students complete an undergraduate degree program. To obtain a masters, you usually need to complete 12 to 18 college courses that often involve completing comprehensive tests and/or a thesis.

Biology examines the activity of organisms in the areas of function, growth, and evolution, as well as how these factors affect where the organism lives. It can further study how individual organisms interact within their environment.

Locations: Barcelona - Madrid - ValenciaHours: SDQualification: Master in Neuroeducation and Capacity Optimization issued by ISEP

Neuroeducation has transformed the paradigm of training by incorporating and promoting the interdisciplinary integration of educational sciences with those that study the functioning of the brain. Thus, unprecedented progress has been made in the learning process, since they contribute to the enhancement of people's neurocognitive and emotional capacities.

The presence of cognitive deficits in different neurological pathologies in childhood such as head injuries, tumors, etc., has made proliferate in recent times different formations in the neuropsychological field to try to alleviate these pathologies through the rehabilitation of functions, as well as the great variability of learning difficulties that we find in today's school. Likewise, there is currently a significant increase in clinical consultations of parents who take their children with clinical and cognitive symptoms, in some cases, and with the absence of it, in others, which disables them for optimal educational development....
