Summary

Offered jointly by Birkbeck and UCL's Institute of Education, our MA Educational Neuroscience will provide you with experience of both in-depth theory and hands-on research in the emerging area of educational neuroscience. It covers:

  • the critical appreciation of existing research and research methods, including neuroimaging methods

  • running a neuroimaging study

  • the biological basis of learning and development in children and its implications for the classroom

  • the relation between genes, brain and cognitive development

  • managing and reporting on an extended research project

  • subject-specific IT skills.

The MA is ideal for teachers, educational psychologists and policy-makers who wish to develop an in-depth understanding of contemporary education and neuroscience that can inform their continuing practice.

If you would like to carry out research in the emerging area of educational neuroscience or any area of developmental psychology, education or developmental cognitive neuroscience, either at PhD level or in the private sector, then the MSc will prepare you with a range of appropriate research skills and practical experience.
