Program description

Science on Emotions

Emotions are a vibrant and rapidly expanding area in disciplines such as psychology, neuroscience, biology, computer science or medicine. The interest in this topic across multiple disciplines reflects the complexity of affective processes and their central role in everyday life, from shaping cognition and behaviour to their influence in health and well-being.  

The Sciences on Emotions MSc at ISCTE-IUL enables students with different backgrounds to develop key research skills and to acquire solid theoretical knowledge on affective sciences. This is one of the only MSc programmes focused on this topic in Europe, and it was considered innovative by the Portuguese Agency for Assessment and Accreditation of Higher Education (A3ES).

The programme is delivered through a combination of lectures, laboratory classes, discussions and practical work, and it provides students with a comprehensive understanding of the latest developments in basic and applied affective sciences research. It provides high quality scientific training, that serves as a basis for PhD study or to undertake research activities outside academia (e.g., industry). The MSc also promotes transferable skills and the acquisition of knowledge relevant for more general careers in marketing, education, health, technology, science communication or management.
