The University of Skövde offers a one-year master’s programme in Cognitive Neuroscience: Mind and Brain, taught entirely in English. This is a demanding master’s programme for students with a background in cognitive neuroscience / 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 psychology, cognitive science, or philosophy. The programme 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).
