Best Part time Master's Degrees in Biological & Life Sciences 2017 in Europe

Biological & Life Sciences

In order to successfully obtain a Masters qualification, you will need to obtain a number of credits by passing individual modules. Most taught Masters will have a number of core modules which you must take and pass in order to obtain the qualification. The assessment of research Masters is almost always entirely by a single dissertation module or project.

When studying biological & life sciences, students learn different characteristics of natural science. Depending on the area of focus, students may study the human body, plant biology, or animal science in order to help with real-world problems.

There are more than four thousand higher education organizations in Europe, from leading research institutions to small, teaching-focused universities. Europe itself is not as much different than other continents, reaching from the Arctic Circle to the coast of Africa.

Programme Overview Our Master's program offers courses in cognitive psychology, cognitive neuroscience and neuro-modelling. Taken together these disciplines study how memories, emotions, cognition or consciousness actually work. Students attend lectures in English and practice in leading laboratories of Moscow and of our international partners. Leading scientists supervise students' practical training and writing of Master's thesis during the second year. The program is carried out in close cooperation with the École Normale Supérieure and Aarhus University. Cognitive psychology Modern cognitive psychology is an experimental discipline that studies the origin and functioning of the mind, brain, and intelligence. Our Program focuses on perception, control of attention and motor responses, formation of mental representations, dynamics of memory retrieval, learning, cognitive development and cognitive breakdown, the mechanisms of reasoning, language, and problem solving. Cognitive neuroscience An integration of psychology and neuroscience - Cognitive Neuroscience - examines neural systems underlying complex behaviors like emotions, language, attention, memory, etc. Methods employed in cognitive neuroscience include a wide range of experimental paradigms starting from psychophysics and cognitive psychology, neurology and psychiatry, and ending up with electrophysiological studies of neural systems and, increasingly, cognitive genomics and behavioral genetics. Recent breakthroughs in brain imaging technology allow cognitive neuroscientists to see a live human brain at work using state-of-the-art methods like functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI), magneto- and electroencephalography (MEG, EEG),brain navigated transcranial magnetic stimulation (nTMS), transcranial direct/alternating current stimulation (tDCS/tACS) .
