Online Courses for Neuroscience

Neuroscience is the scientific study of the nervous system (brain and spinal cord): how it develops, its structure, and what it does. It also studies the nervous system in relation to behavioral patterns. A Master’s in Neuroscience (M.Sc) aims to provide students with an understanding of the scientific perspectives of brain mechanisms. It provides students with skills training in a wide range of experimental and theoretical methods intended to enable them to ask questions and tackle problems that transcend the traditional disciplines from which neuroscience has evolved. Graduates from a Neuroscience Master’s Degrees are prepared for scientific careers in neuroscience-related academic research environments, or employment in an academic, clinical or pharmaceutical organization. Common jobs include neurologists, neuroanatomists, neurological surgeons, neuro-pharmacologists and psychiatrists.
