Master of Education in Mind, Brain and Education Harvard University




Course info


Advances in biology and neuroscience are showing us how a child’s brain and cognitive development are shaped by his or her learning experiences and environment. Instead of debating nature versus nurture, we now know that “nature” — our DNA and RNA — is much more fluid and complex than we ever imagined. Learning, in turn, affects the brain and its capacities. In the Mind, Brain, and Education (MBE) Program, you will learn how the latest findings in biology and cognitive science bear on fundamental questions of education, such as how people learn and what can we do to improve learning.

These big questions give rise to more specific questions. In MBE, you can investigate important questions like:

  • How does bilingualism affect overall cognitive development?
  • Does our understanding of sleep cycles and the teenage brain make a strong argument for later school days?
  • What biological and social factors contribute to math anxiety? And how are they related?
  • Why are some students with dyslexia often better at science and visual processing?
  • Do improvements in standardized test scores correlate with improved cognitive skills?

MBE coursework provides a broad foundation in the science of cognition and brain development, the principles of teaching and learning, and the research methods that allow us to make strong connections between biological processes and educational outcomes. The curriculum is excellent preparation for both academic researchers and professional educators.

Students pursue a course of study that promotes development of interdisciplinary thinking and research analysis skills and allows for customization based on the academic and professional goals of each individual.
