Berlin School of Mind and Brain

The Berlin School of Mind and Brain is a graduate institution of Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin. Our focus is on the interface between the humanities and behavioral sciences with the neurosciences. We offer a two-year Master’s degree and a three-year doctoral program. The interdisciplinary research, education and training takes place in English. We are a founding member of the Einstein Center for Neurosciences Berlin since 2016, and we host members of the national Max Planck School of Cognition for 2018–2023. The DFG-funded Research Training Group 2386 “Extrospection” will be part of the school for 2018–2023. Our school supports the graduate program of Excellence Cluster 2002 “Science of Intelligence” at TU and HU Berlin for 2018–2025.
