The master’s course is designed to train researchers to an internationally competitive level in behavioural sciences, specifically in the areas of personality and behaviour, cognition and plasticity, primatology and in research methodology in behavioural sciences. This programme has obtained a quality award from the Catalan University Quality Assurance Agency (AQU).
The teaching plan consists of a number of subjects that provide an overall update in the contents of these areas, complemented with solid training in research methodology and other related topics, such as neuroscience. The master's degree also prepares students to access the doctoral programme. In particular, it is associated with the UB doctoral programmes in Brain, Cognition and Behaviour, and in Biodiversity.
