Education -- Overview

Although the MPI for Psycholinguistics is primarily a research organization, we are very strongly involved in all kinds of educational networks and programs.

For example:

  • We coordinate the International Max Planck Research School for Language Sciences, a cooperation between the MPI and the faculties of Science, Medicine, Arts and Social Sciences of the Radboud University, Nijmegen.
  • We are key player in the multidisciplinary Master's Programme in Cognitive Neuroscience, defining and contributing to courses in the Psycholinguistics specialization
  • All our directors, as well as some of our other senior staff, have full professorships at the Radboud University, where they contribute to various local curricula.
  • Our scientists are frequently invited to teach at summer schools and in university curricula elsewhere, in Europe and beyond.
  • Our ongoing research projects provide ample hands-on training opportunities for Master's and PhD students (list of dissertations).

About MPI

This is the MPI

The Max Planck Institute for Psycholinguistics is an institute of the German Max Planck Society. Our mission is to undertake basic research into the psychological,social and biological foundations of language. The goal is to understand how our minds and brains process language, how language interacts with other aspects of mind, and how we can learn languages of quite different types.

The institute is situated on the campus of the Radboud University. We participate in the Donders Institute for Brain, Cognition and Behaviour, and have particularly close ties to that institute's Centre for Cognitive Neuroimaging. We also participate in the Centre for Language Studies. A joint graduate school, the IMPRS in Language Sciences, links the Donders Institute, the CLS and the MPI.
