What happens in society is in the end all caused by human behaviour. Whether it's about the way we behave towards one another or how business are trying to sell you their products, or how politicians or NGO's are trying to get your attention. That's why psychology and neuroscience are vital.
This master's track will help you learn and hone skills to tackle important social issues using insights from the field of Brain and Cognitive Sciences. The curriculum focuses on how theoretical and methodological knowledge from the field of Brain and Cognition can contribute to tackle these issues. You will learn to set up applied experiments and translate empirical findings into practical advice, working on cases from real companies.
The teachers you will be working with in this master’s track are all leading by example. They are firmly rooted within the academic world on one side, but have their own company where they bring the scientifical knowledge regarding Brain & Cognition into the society on the other side. The track ambassador is Prof. Dr. Victor Lamme.
The mastertrack Brain & Cognition in Society provides its graduates with the necessary theoretical, intellectual and empirical tools to find work in an applied context. Previous graduates continued their careers in the following fields:
- science writing
- human resources
- IT sector
