The UAM Master’s Program in Neuroscience provides a global multi-disciplinary introduction to brain science, with a focus on cellular and functional systems. The Program is directed both to students planning to pursue a Ph.D in Neuroscience, and to students pursuing careers in the Health Sciences, Education or Information Technologies.

The Program Faculty are professional researchers from both the UAM Department of Anatomy, Histology & Neuroscience or the Cajal Institute of the Spanish National Research Council (CSIC). Additional Faculty comes from other UAM, University of Alcalá, and National Open University (UNED) Departments, from other CSIC institutes, as well as guest speakers from other national and foreign scientific institutions.

Obtaining a UAM Master’s Degree in Neuroscience requires passing 90 European Credit Transfer System credits (ECTS) over 3 or 4 Semesters. The Program is taught mostly in Spanish, although its activities require a fluent level of English.

As a member of the European Network of Neuroscience Schools, the UAM Master in Neuroscience offers its students the possibility of participating in training activities in Postgraduate Neuroscience Programs, throughout Europe.
