The Research Master in Cognitive and Clinical Neuroscience at Maastricht University is a two-year, selective, internationally oriented and English taught programme designed for excellent students who wish to continue their graduate studies in preparation for a career in research.

The specialisation in Neuroeconomics is a truly interdisciplinary endeavour jointly organised by the Faculty of Psychology and Neuroscience (FPN) and the Economics Departments of the School of Business and Economics (SBE). Students will follow courses at SBE as well as FPN and will receive an in-depth training in quantitative theoretical and empirical methods in economics, game theory, and cognitive neuroscience as well as extensive hands-on training in all aspects of experimental and neuroimaging research. The programme combines methodological training with theoretical and experimental approaches from economics, psychology, and neuroscience to study human decisions in all its aspects.

Excellent research internship opportunities will be offered at Maastricht University as well as at prestigious universities and institutions in Europe and North America.
