Welcome to the Master of Science (M.Sc.) in Neurosciences of the University of Bonn
The MSc in the field of Neurosciences at the University of Bonn is a two-year research oriented, international study program. The curriculum is divided into modules, combining courses, lectures, seminars and laboratory work. During the first semester three compulsory modules (7.5 credit points (CP) each) provide the basics in the neurosciences. Additionally, students have to choose one elective module (7.5 CP each) during their first semester. In the second semester a fourth compulsory module propagates knowledge in Statistics, Scientific writing and Research Ethics.
