Coursework|Graduate Neuroscience Program

Neuroscience Coursework:  The specific required coursework is listed under the Ph.D. and Masters Programs.  The required coursework is arranged so that it is completed in one (Master's) or two (PhD.) years.  Below are a group of core courses for Neuroscience students that provide a foundation in the neurosciences  and data analysis.

  • Introduction to Neuroscience
  • Structure & Function of the Nervous System
  • Neurophysiology
  • Neuroscience Seminar. Students are also expected to enroll in an on-going Seminar in Neuroscience. The weekly Neuroscience Seminar provides an opportunity for intellectual and social exchange among the students and faculty. The topic and the faculty member directing the Seminar changes each semester.
  • Bio-Statistics


Research. The Neuroscience Program is a research-oriented program and students are expected to take a minimum of 2-3 credit hours of research per semester.

The remaining coursework is tailored to fit the student. Beyond the foundational courses, the student and faculty advisor identify elective courses that best meet the educational and research needs of the student.  Additional courses in  cell physiology, neurodegeneration, pathophysiology, molecular biology, pharmacology, electron and confocal microscopy are available to Neuroscience students.
