The Master of Cognitive Sciences offers an interdisciplinary training aimed at providing students with the knowledge and skills necessary for fundamental or applied research in the field of cognitive sciences. This Master's degree is in the fields of Science, Engineering, Technology, and Environment (SITE), Human and Social Sciences (SHS) and Biology, Health, Sport (BSS). The challenge of the training is to train creative researchers or engineers in cognitive sciences who are trained in experimentation, data processing and modelling.

The organization of the training allows students to acquire skills in the following areas:
  • acquire and master academic knowledge at the state of the art level in different fields of Cognitive Sciences
  • team work in a research laboratory
  • acquire strong technical skills in the fields of modelling or experimentation
  • analyze, critique and discuss scientific results
  • mobilize multidisciplinary knowledge
  • research and analysis of scientific literature
  • understand and present the development of scientific projects
  • use English in a scientific context
  • use the office automation and computer tools necessary for research
  • communicate scientific results orally
  • write a research internship report
  • be familiar with the laboratory's operating rules.

This interdisciplinary training is derived from seven different existing Master degrees at Université Côte d'Azur which are:
  • Psychology
  • Mathematics
  • Neurosciences
  • Language Sciences
  • Behavioural economics
The core courses aims to provide students with a solid foundation in various fields of cognitive science. 
The other part of the program is made up of elective courses to be chosen from a panel, according to the student's disciplinary and thematic interests, thus allowing the student to specialize in a discipline and/or a theme of Cognitive Sciences.
This course is aimed at students interested in a multidisciplinary approach to a single subject of study (cognition), in experimental approaches (psychology, psycholinguistics, neuroscience) and in data processing (statistics, modelling). In particular, it prepares students for further study at doctoral level.

The Master's degree is supported by the NeuroMod Institute, which federates interdisciplinary research on the modelling of neuronal and cognitive systems at the Université Côte d'Azur.

The training takes place on all campuses of the University (Valrose, Carlone, Saint-Jean d'Angely, Sophia-Antipolis).
