Berlin School of Mind and Brain

The Berlin School of Mind and Brain was established in 2006 and offers a two-year Master’s degree, a comprehensive three-year doctoral program, and postdoctoral research and career development opportunities. The interdisciplinary education, training and research takes place in English, and the focus is on the interface between the humanities and behavioral sciences with the neurosciences. We are a graduate institution of Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin, in collaboration with Charité - Universitätsmedizin Berlin. The school is the first-prize winner of the “Einstein Doctoral Programme 2017–2019” competition.
