Neuroscience Graduate (MS, PhD) Programs

Graduate students work closely with faculty who assist in planning programs of study, research training in the laboratory, and employment opportunities. Graduates from this program are successful at acquiring faculty and research positions in colleges and universities, as well as employment in industry, research laboratories, state and national government agencies, and private firms.

Graduate students can pursue an advanced degree in neuroscience through a M.S. or Ph.D. in the Department of Biology or a Ph.D. in the Department of Psychology. Students interested in working with faculty who are part of the Department of Biology should apply to "Biology". Students interested in working with faculty members in the Department of Psychology should apply to "Psychology".
