Driving Science, By Leading Change

Careers in laboratory science are constantly changing with new technologies and techniques. However, one thing remains unchanged - successful careers in clinical, pharmaceutical, biotechnology, and academic laboratories require fluency with instrumentation and the ability to interpret and analyze the data that it generates.

Students pursuing more traditional STEM Master of Science degrees are often narrowly trained in a single discipline, while students with a Professional Science Master degree sometimes lack broad scientific training. Bay Path’s MS in Applied Laboratory Science & Operations program bridges that divide.

The goal of this master's track is to provide insights into recent scientific advances in the field of Neuroeconomics and identify current societal challenges that can benefit from the insights gained by understanding the neurobiological basis of social and economic decision making and the emotional and cognitive processes that support choice. Interdisciplinary fields, such as Neuroeconomics, enable researchers to approach scientific questions from a broader perspective and thereby offer unique advantages that enrich the scientific process by offering multiple levels of analysis. However, this opportunity comes with a specific challenge: understanding the different research methods and theoretical perspectives used across disciplines. To enable students to bridge the disciplines that together compose Neuroeconomics, in-depth training will be provided in Economics, Cognitive Neuroscience and Psychology.... [-]

The Master's programme aims to train students to become experts in their specific subfield of the Brain and Cognitive Sciences but with a clear understanding and appreciation of the contribution made by the other subfields. All students complete a core curriculum next to their chosen direction within the Research Master's programme in Brain and Cognitive Sciences. The core curriculum of this programme integrates various perspectives from within the discipline and includes a weekly journal club and an annual summer school, both of which focus on cutting-edge topics in an intensively interdisciplinary setting.

Disciplinary quality and interdisciplinary insights

The goal is to provide a programme that is equal in disciplinary quality to monodisciplinary programmes but in addition trains you to be aware of and understand the separate contributions and research methods of the large number of disciplines that contribute to the field of cognition and thus not suffer the inadequacies of monodisciplines. This enables you to reflect on, interpret and answer complex questions arising in science nowadays and that arise in our modern society. Interdisciplinary thinking cannot be learned from a book but is a skill which develops from the learning process of combining insights of more than one discipline that can lead to new insights....
