Courses Offered in the Master and Doctoral Degree Programs

The more than 50 courses listed under ‘Winter Term’ and ‘Summer Term’ represent the compulsory and elective courses for master students of the three schools.  They are offered periodically every academic year.  These courses are also open for doctoral students, as well as for students from other faculties and for exchange students.  Please note, however, that for non-master students admission to the courses of choice can not be guaranteed.

In addition, we offer in the winter and summer term advanced courses exclusively for doctoral students.  On average, 15-20 courses per year are offered by the GTC, including advanced neuroscience, methods, statistics and programming courses, summer/autumn schools, courses on transferable skills and ethics issues, excursions to potential employers, as well as several periodical seminars and doctoral retreats.

Furthermore, we offer a series of specialized courses for female scientists, in conjunction with the CIN Board for the Advancement of Women.  In addition, our doctoral students are encouraged to participate in courses and summer schools elsewhere in Germany, Europe or abroad.  These endeavors are financially supported by the GTC and the IMPRS.
