Master in Neuroscience

Post by hurly » Fri Sep 16, 2005 5:48 pm

Just out of curiousity, is this a major worth aiming for?
I would like to know how the job market is for people with this master degree...

I'm currently doing a 5 year master program in biotechnology, but not sure this is my right major.
Biotechnology is safer to bet on than neuroscience?

I'm majoring in neuroscience, but my country does not have a market for this. Actually there is no market for biologists at all in my country. In addition the purpose of a master as I understand it, is to learn as many techniques as possible, and not to specialize in something. When it comes to a job application I don’t think their primary concern is the exact topic of your master.

Currents trends point to Biotechnology careers.
I personally will say screw that and go with neuroscience.

Research does keep advancing and is very interesting to get into and superbugs are annoying.

I'm a science major but I try to specialize at various things such as biotech,biochem,neuroscience,cognitive science, etc..

I would have to say that if you are in it for the money do biotechnology. Most people are doing some science careers for the money which is psychological control (insert rant here). I personally like neursci because it needs more development and I believe it holds more hope.
