The Cognitive Neuroscience MSc course offered by Durham University is aimed at those from closely related science backgrounds, to build up a knowledge and practical experience of cognitive neuroscience and psychology, before embarking on a psychology related career.
As the theoretical background to, and techniques of, cognitive neuroscience are rarely available to students at undergraduate level, the main objective of this MSc is to provide you with detailed historical, philosophical, theoretical and practical knowledge of a broad range of cognitive neuroscience techniques. This wide-ranging knowledge will make you an extremely strong candidate for future research positions, and provides you with an ability to develop broad research programmes, utilising a range of techniques, as an independent researcher.
Course Learning and Teaching
The MSc Cognitive Neuroscience is delivered through a mixture of lectures, seminars, practical sessions, workshops and lab placements.
Lectures provide key theoretical information on general topics such as cognition, emotion and neuropsychology, and in depth knowledge of a range of techniques used in cognitive neuroscience research (focusing on their strengths and weaknesses). This core knowledge is then enriched by seminars, workshops, practical sessions and lab placements.
