Apply knowledge from the field of Brain and Cognitive Sciences to answer important societal questions. You learn to set up applied experiments, and to translate empirical findings into practical advice.
This year, you won’t be able to attend any busy on-campus events with lots of people. But our online Open House is the perfect way to get to know UvA study programmes and university life from the comfort of your own home.
Every study programme has an Open House page with videos, FAQs and live events. On the main Open House website you can discover all our programmes,explore the city and campus, and get inspired during our theme weeks.
Society's interest in the brain and mind has exploded in recent years. This is due in part to increased scientific knowledge about the relationship between cognitive functions, like attention and memory, and performance in every-day life, as well as to technological advances that have provided unprecedented insight into the brain’s workings and new methods that allow continuous monitoring of behavior or cognitive and bodily functions (e.g., internet, wearables, smartphone apps). The primary focus in the curriculum of the master track Brain and Cognition in Society is on how theoretical and methodological knowledge from the field of brain and cognition can contribute to answering societal questions.
This track is unique in that it provides students with the latest insights from the field of Brain & Cognition and advanced methodological, statistical and practical skills. It prepares students to work in applied contexts. There is a strong emphasis on real-world problems and interactions with society. Students from this track can truly bridge the gap between science and society.
