This program deepens the students’ knowledge about the functioning, development and research methods of fundamental cognitive systems (perception and action, language, thinking), also addressing the areas of neuropsychology, psycholinguistics, evolutionary and biological psychology. Students of the program get acquainted with the most up-to-date results, the diagnostic methods and developmental trends of cognitive neuroscience, psychiatry, neuro- and behavioral genetics, utilizable in cognitive psychology. In the program’s curriculum, there is a strong focus on preparation for individual research activities. Students will become capable of applying the methods of modern experimental psychology, designing and running individual research work, and of carrying out practical work in the applied fields of cognitive science. This training provides a strong basis for further doctoral studies in local or international PhD programs, but also sets the basis for different specific trainings following the MA diploma (e.g. clinical psychology, health psychology, neuropsychology).
