Many members of the CCNB contribute to teaching at the Freie Universität Berlin and in the wider academic community of Berlin. Central to the educational activities of the CCNB are the MSc program in Social, Cognitive, and Affective Neuroscience (SCAN) and the MSc program in Data Science, both of which accept up to twenty students each academic year. In the SCAN program, students will obtain an in-depth theoretical and practical training across a broad range of neuroscientific topics and methods. The program is specifically tailored for postgraduate research in cognitive neuroscience. The Data Science program is for students who wish to specialize in the processing and analysis of large amounts of data, so-called big data. The program is interdisciplinary and is supported by the institutes for Computer Science, Mathematics, Bioinformatics, and Psychology.
Many of the CCNB professors are also actively involved in the Bachelor of Psychology program of the Freie Universität Berlin.
