Hosted by the Ecole normale supérieure (ENS), Paris-Descartes University and the EHESS, the Cogmaster programme offers a unique curriculum in Europe. It is open to students with diverse backgrounds and offers academic and industrial opportunities in prestigious research institutions and in many companies in data science, artificial intelligence, bio- and neuro-technologies, education and public policy. 

The intensive training programme involves multiple excellent higher education institutions to offer the best in each field, with 800 hours of courses taught by leading experts. In order for students to be directly immersed in research, it offers the opportunity to perform internships in the best cognitive science laboratories in France and in the rest of the world. 

The majority of Cogmaster teaching is given in English. Student/teacher interactions and all exams can take place in French or in English, as chosen by each student.

Learning outcomes 

The goal of the Cogmaster is to train high-level scientists in at least one discipline of cognitive science, with broad knowledge and a solid methodological training covering all of the cognitive sciences.  

Target audience 

The Cogmaster is intended for a small number of highly motivated students, from very diverse backgrounds but with a solid training in one of the fundamental disciplines of cognitive science: psychology, biology, linguistics, philosophy, social science, mathematics, computer science. It is also open to medical and engineering students. 

Opportunities 

The Cogmaster is primarily a research programme, which prepares students to start a PhD, and also offers many other opportunities. Its international scientific level allows students to aspire to occupy positions in academic or industrial research, in various institutions and companies.
