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