Course summary

Developmental Cognitive Neuroscience explores how the mind changes as children grow up, examining the environmental and biological influences on the developing brain.

You'll be provided with perspectives from developmental cognitive neuroscience and developmental and cognitive psychology, as well as hands-on training in brain imaging methods. You'll explore topical issues such as neural bases of perceiving, acting in the physical and social world and neuroeducation.

Course content

This course is made up of 180 credits, consisting of taught modules and a substantial independent research project.

Your empirical research project enables you to participate in the design and implementation of a theoretically-motivated piece of pure or applied research in cognitive neuroscience, providing hands-on training in advanced brain imaging methods, some of which are being developed at York.

Careers and skills

This MSc will enhance your transferable skills as well as the skills required for careers in a range of industries. A high proportion of our graduates go on to complete PhDs in neuroimaging, psychology or neuropsychology. Others gain further research experience before undertaking a PhD or training in Clinical Psychology; or find work as Assistant Psychologists and Research Assistants.

The Department's Employability Coordinator works closely with the University careers service, which offers our students an additional range of career and recruitment events, skills sessions and one-to-one advice.
