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:

  • Neurobiology, Neurophysiology, Neuropathology (N3)
  • or Integrative and Cognitive Neuroscience (NIC).


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.
