Master in Psychology
Master specialisation Brain and Cognition
The human brain has an immense capacity to process information and represent the outside world. A critical question is how the various brain structures are involved in processing and representing emotions, actions, language, and concepts. This question can only be successfully addressed by combining biological and cognitive perspectives on brain functioning. The Brain and Cognition programme at the Erasmus University Rotterdam offers such a combination of perspectives.
In a unique active learning environment, students will be equipped with theoretical and methodological knowledge and skills to tackle questions regarding brain functioning and cognitive emotional processes. In addition to dynamic Problem-Guided class discussions, there will be lab assignments and research projects.
Successful completion of the Programme will make the student well-prepared for a successful career in academia or industry in the domain of brain and cognition.
