  • Program Overview

    The mission of the Graduate Program in Neuroscience is to prepare students for tomorrow’s careers in neuroscience.


    We offer a comprehensive curriculum in which we:

    • Teach fundamental neuroscience concepts that will form the basis for in-depth research and further study;
    • Provide experience in transferable skills, including grant and manuscript writing, oral presentation, and critical thinking skills;
    • Provide opportunities for teaching lectures to undergraduate students and students in professional schools;
    • Provide exposure to and information about career opportunities and professional development.


    Students engage in scientific research from the first day in the program:

    • Students engage in short 5-week rotations in the first two semesters and semester-long rotations or dissertation research after the first two semesters.

    Program atmosphere

    We are a relatively young and small program with emphasis on providing support towards each individual student's career goals.
