Our Master’s program Neuroscience focusses on (but is not limited to) Sensory, Behavioural, and Computational Neuroscience.
It is directed towards basic science and therefore mainly covers the nervous systems of vertebrate and invertebrate animals.
In addition to theoretical and experimental neuroscience background knowledge, students acquire transferrable skills and hands-on research experience in at least one research project prior to the Master’s thesis.
- International: All courses in English, semester abroad is possible
- Science-oriented: Individual student projects in research groups
- Interdisciplinary: Teachers & students with mixed backgrounds, joint courses with Biology, Psychology, Molecular Biomedicine and „Physics, Engineering and Medicine’.
- Flexible: There are no mandatory courses. Students design their individual corriculum from a large range of elective modules based on their interests according to the focus topics or their combination.
