Summary

This MSc in Social Neuroscience gives you the opportunity to develop an advanced knowledge of how the brain responds to and makes sense of the social world, as well as confidence in the use of neuroscientific research skills (for instance, electrophysiology and eye-tracker experiments).

Humans’ social nature is based on neural, hormonal, and molecular structures and networks that we have started to understand only relatively recently. This includes studying the processes behind the sensation and perception of social stimuli, and the behaviours associated with social interactions. This highly progressive Master’s programme is designed to give you excellent learning opportunities in Social Neuroscience – supported by our department’s enthusiastic, supportive teaching staff and a technology-enriched learning environment.

You’ll have the chance to explore issues from a variety of perspectives, underpinned by a research-informed knowledge base, as you develop an in-depth knowledge of Social Neuroscience. You’ll also be encouraged to refine and enhance your critical evaluation and reflection skills.

As you progress, you’ll have the opportunity to enhance your research skills, to help you conceptualise, design and implement a substantial piece of independent research. This, in turn, offers you a unique opportunity to contribute to the ongoing development of new ideas and approaches in Social Neuroscience.

Successfully completing this course will open up a wide range of opportunities for employment, or further study at doctorate level.
