Research Training Group (RTG) 2386 “Extrospection. External access to higher cognitive processes”
The RTG-specific research seminars, retreats and journal clubs will focus on actual developments of essential relevance for the RTG’s main topic "Extrospection". Since they are also intended to foster interdisciplinary research, cooperation, and interaction among the RTG’s candidates and faculty, they will be offered in each semester.
There will be
- Research Seminars (specific to RTG)
- Retreats and Journal Clubs (specific to RTG)
- Basic and advanced yourses (RTG with the Berlin School of Mind and Brain and other partners)
- Scientific soft-skill courses / key competencies
Fast-track students (combining Master's program and doctoral study)
Since the RTG will compete with international graduate programs many of which include a combined master’s and PhD program, we will establish a fast-track option. The fast-track will consist of a one-year master’s program with a consecutive three-year doctorate. Students will have to pass an internal evaluation after the first year in order to be admitted to the doctoral program. Students who do not pass this evaluation will be given the possibility to continue their master’s studies in the Berlin School of Mind and Brain’s master’s program “Mind and Brain” for another year and to get their MA (Mind track) or MSc (Brain track) degree there.
