With the MSc Clinical, Social and Cognitive Neuroscience programme from City, University of London you will bridge the three major research and clinical disciplines of clinical, social and cognitive neuroscience. 


You gain a strong grounding in the neuroscience that underpins mental health, well-being, and psychiatric illness, social and affective interaction, and human cognition.

Your learning will bridge three research and clinical disciplines.

Clinical neuroscience will give you an understanding of mental health and neurological, psychological or psychiatric illness via their neural and cognitive antecedents.

Social neuroscience will let you investigate brain processes that help us communicate, feel, learn, and interact with others.

Cognitive neuroscience will enable you to explore human cognitive functions such as memory, perception and language in healthy and clinical states.


In this Clinical, Social and Cognitive Neuroscience programme from City, University of London you will learn from seminars, lectures, computing and statistics classes, and by undertaking an individual research project supervised by a member of staff.

Our teaching is research-led and delivered by internationally recognised experts in their field. Your learning experience will be enhanced by our invited speakers' programme of external experts working in clinical, social or cognitive neuroscience.

Optional clinical and research internships are available to you, presenting significant additional learning opportunities.
