Concentration in Neuroscience


Students pursuing a Concentration in Neuroscience must take NEUS 501 and 502 and at least 12 additional hours of neuroscience courses at the 400- or 500-level OR BIOS/PHIL/PSCH 484 and 485 and at least 10 additional hours of neuroscience courses at the 400- or 500-level. Neuroscience electives will be assessed and approved by the Graduate Studies Committee of the Graduate Program in Neuroscience (GPN). Research, departmental seminars (journal clubs), and independent study cannot be included in these 10–12 hours of course credit. Of these 10–12 hours, at least 50% must be outside the student’s major department and must be divided among at least 2 other departments.
