Neuroscience Master’s Program


Our master’s program is attached to two of Aix Marseille University (AMU) faculties: the Faculty of Science and the Faculty of Medicine.

During the 2 years of the program, students take common courses but also choose specialized courses, in either:

  • Molecular, Cellular and Integrated Neuroscience (NMCI in French)
  • Integrated, Cognitive and Behavioral Neuroscience (NICC in French)
  • Neuroscience and Biotechnology (NEB in French ; EMN-Online network)


We train our students in neuroscience research through internships in affiliated laboratories.

Visit our lab directory to assess the full extent of neuroscience research in Marseille, a field ranging from molecules to cognitive functions through the study of neurons, neural networks and large integrated functions.
