We offer a master degree in Neuroscience at Ludwig-Maximilians-University (LMU) Munich. The essential question in modern neurosciences is to understand how the human brain is functioning on all levels, from molecules to cognition. 


Key facts

In order to approach these questions, neuroscience researchers and thinkers develop and use a wide spectrum of experimental and analytical methods from a broad variety of disciplines. 

As the techniques and analyses are becoming more to being interdisciplinary, the increasing demand for academics with an interdisciplinary and integrative educational background is not suprising. 

At Ludwig-Maximilians-University (LMU) Munich we offer a master degree in Neuroscience. Based on its strong history and today proficient expertise in neurosciences, Munich is by all measures worldwide one of the most important centers for neurosciences and thus, an important international site for interdisciplinary research and education in the field.

The programs at the GSN provide basic and individual teaching concepts for master students with an educational background in neurosciences but also from other related fields such as life sciences, math, physics, computational sciences, engineering and also philosophy (which is unique in the field of neuroscience degree programs).
