      Do you want to learn more about issues relating to the links between consciousness, the brain and subjective well-being? This English-language master’s programme gives you the opportunity to develop your knowledge within these issues at a high level.

      About the programme

      The University of Skövde offers a one-year master’s programme in Cognitive Neuroscience: Consciousness and the brain, taught entirely in English. This is a demanding master’s programme for students with a background in cognitive neuroscience or consciousness studies, or in closely related subjects. It may also be suitable as a conversion programme for students with an interest in these subject areas and a background in a subject such as philosophy, cognitive science, neuroscience or experimental psychology. The programme is taught in English, and provides a sound basis for research and teaching at a higher level within cognitive neuroscience. It requires ongoing, focused studies over the course of a year (two consecutive semesters).

      Constituent courses in the study programme

      During the first semester, you will study four courses within different subjects including cognitive neuroscience, research methods and statistics. This takes the form of lectures, seminars, workshops and group discussions. Several of the courses are given by internationally leading researchers at the department. During the second semester, you will carry out an empirical or theoretical study within cognitive neuroscience. This forms the basis for a final degree project. During the semester, you will receive personal supervision from an experienced member of teaching staff in your studies and your work.

      Opportunities for further studies

      The programme began in 2011, but has already achieved strong academic results. After graduating, the majority of students have continued their studies at second- or third-cycle level at various universities, both in Sweden and abroad, including Örebro University, Umeå University, the University of Turku, Ruhr-Universität Bochum, Radboud University, the University of Bern and University College London.

      Application period

      The programme is taught in English, and you can apply during the international application period. Search on universityadmissions.se.

      Research

      Most senior members of teaching staff at the department also carry out active research, in some cases as part of major research projects. Find out more about this research and previous theses at the university’s international website.
