The Master's course in Cognitive Science is entirely offered in English. Students choose between two tracks:

  • Cognitive Neuroscience (CN)
  • Language and Multimodal Interaction (LMI)

Each track offers a selection of specialized courses, to allow students to tailor their training to their academic interests. The curriculum includes courses focusing on neurophysiological aspects of cognitive processes, the study of human behavior, and human-computer interaction.

Two characteristic features of this program are:

  • a close relationship between teaching and research practices;
  • a constant interplay between biology-based and technology-based explorations of the human mind and brain.

All students are actively involved in developing research projects and have access to the laboratories during the Master’s program, thus gaining invaluable hands-on experience with the latest research technologies, including fMRI, EEG, MEG, TMS and eye tracking. This opportunity provides the type of technical skills needed in industry and necessary for acceptance into competitive Ph.D. programs.
