Description de la soumission d'un avis
Heads of the MSc
There are four heads of the MSc in neuroscience:
- Christian GESTREAU
- Jean PELLETIER
- Jean-Philippe RANJEVA
- Francesca SARGOLINI
The master aims to train students in the various fields of neuroscience (molecular and cellular neurobiology, neurodevelopment, neurophysiology, behavioural and cognitive neuroscience...), giving them a common training base as well as skills in one of the three tracks of the master's.
The aim is to acquire training in research and through research so that students learn, among other things, how to work in a team, develop experimental protocols, manage projects...
Students in the classical tracks (NMCI and NICC) carry out two research internships: 4 weeks in the 1st year (M1) and 21 weeks in M2 (i.e. one 5-month internship, or two 2.5-month internships).
The master’s degree in neuroscience has three tracks:
- Neurosciences moléculaires, cellulaires et intégrées (NMCI)
- Neurosciences intégrées, cognitives et comportementales (NICC)
- Neurosciences et biotechnologies (NEB), shared with the international network EMN-Online
In the 1st year (M1), the NMCI, NICC and NEB tracks offer a 100% common core, i.e. 6 common courses in semester 1.
In semester 2, all the courses begin to specialize via the optional courses offered, which lead to the 3 distinct tracks in second year (M2) neuroscience.
New features are offered in each track since 2019, in particular professionalization courses. Additional professional diplomas to prepare your future are also available, such as Scientific communication techniques, Design of experimental procedures – Rodents.
The Master’s courses are currently given in French or partially in English.
Only the scientific symposium (M2) is entirely in English.
In the other courses, we are making a transition to English materials at the M2 level.
Some problem-based learning modules may be offered in English depending on the number of non-French speaking students.
Exams can be taken in either French or English, as desired.
