Title with Rights and Privileges
The degree awarded upon successful completion of the Neuro-Cognitive Psychology program carries the title "Master of Science" (M.Sc.) in Neuro-cognitive Psychology. A degree attained in the Neuro-cognitive Psychology program carries with it all the rights and privileges of any degree issued by the Ludwig-Maximilian University of Munich.
Successful completion of the program entitles the holder of the degree to the international academic title "Master of Science" (M.Sc.). The M.Sc. degree qualifies the recipient to apply for admission to a doctoral research project at any university or research institution and to work within any profession for which a master's degree is required, especially within the various fields of life and behavioral sciences. The master's degree is awarded by the Examiners Office of the University of Munich. The German government regards the master's degree as the equivalent of the German "Diplom" degree.
