MSc Cognitive Neuroscience at Durham University

[email protected]


Enhance your understanding of Neural Processes that take place in the brain when people interact with the world and what may happen with these processes in disease or injury.


The MSc Cognitive Neuroscience is aimed at those who are seeking to build up knowledge and practical experience of Cognitive Neuroscience and Psychology. Students from our course go on to pursue careers in research or research related disciplines, as well as careers in industry, clinical settings or education.


The MSc in Cognitive Neuroscience at Durham University stands out because it has many practical elements, like workshops and lab placements, that allow you to experience research rather than just hearing about it.


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 theoretical and practical knowledge of Cognitive Neuroscience and Cognitive Neuroscience Techniques (incl. Programming, Project Management and Statistics).


Our Masters qualifications provide the essential skills and understanding to progress to research at a higher academic level or to launch a professional career.


Our students enter the workplace with knowledge relevant to careers in Psychology but also with the transferable skills in analysis and problem-solving that are valued by employers.


Such skills are highly sought after in a range of professions and our postgraduates have progressed to roles that include consultants, advisors, human resources professionals, talent managers, business analysts, market researchers, public relations professionals, marketeers, administrators, managers, civil servants, coaches, trainers and teachers.


In addition, the broad nature of the Department means that some of our postgraduates also qualify for careers in clinical and healthcare settings.
