University of VigogoalsThe objective of the master's degree in neuroscience is to offer a program aimed at the advanced training of researchers in the field of neuroscience, which is capable of responding to the challenges posed by the European Higher Education Area in the postgraduate field. Provides the theoretical and experimental bases necessary for the completion of the Doctoral Thesis in the field of Neuroscience
General CompetencesAll students will be guaranteedThey know the fundamentals of neuroscience and the subjects of the same object of interest.
Know and know how to use the experimental techniques of the fields of neuroscience that are the object of their interest.
Possess a degree of specialization, which means knowledge of specific problems, theories and techniques, in at least one field of neuroscience.
Know how to read and obtain relevant information from scientific publications.
Know how to apply the knowledge acquired and their ability to solve problems in new or unfamiliar environments within broader (or multidisciplinary) contexts related to neuroscience.
Be able to integrate knowledge and face the complexity of formulating judgments based on information that, being incomplete or limited, includes reflections on the social and ethical responsibilities linked to the application of their knowledge and judgments.
Know how to work in multidisciplinary groups.
They possess the learning skills that allow them to continue studying in a way that will be largely self-directed or autonomous.CurriculumSpecialties or itineraries:
The master has the following specialties:Specialty in Cognitive Neuroscience
Specialty in Cellular and Molecular Neurobiology.For a specialty to be included in the title, the student must take at least 5 subjects within the specialty.
Credit transfer and recognition:
Recognition of credits: consists of the acceptance by a university of the credits that were obtained in an official education, in the same or in another university, and that are computed in other different teachings for the purposes of obtaining an official degree.
Transfer of credits: implies that in the official academic documents accrediting the successive teachings for each student, the totality of the credits obtained in official teachings taken previously, in the same or in another university, that have not led to the obtaining of an official title.SaidasIn the professional field, the postgraduate degree in Neuroscience provides students with the theoretical and technical knowledge necessary for jobs in companies and industries related to this field.
It allows the professionals of the clinic to update their knowledge of the biological bases of the functioning of the nervous system, as well as of neurological and mental disorders.
The master's degree is characterized by its interdisciplinarity, covering areas of basic, applied and clinical neuroscience, also offering training in news technologies such as genomics and bioinformatics.
It has researcher and academic profiles, since it is fundamentally aimed at the training of researchers, giving access to doctoral studies in Neuroscience, but it constitutes a specialty in itself.
