Graduate Neuroscience Program

The overarching goal of the Neuroscience Program and its faculty are to provide students with a highly competitive graduate education that promotes independent thinking, scholarly leadership, and a sense of ethical responsibility.

The following document (the Neuroscience Program Handbook) provides an overview of the: Organization of the Neuroscience Program, Admissions criteria and procedure, expectations for graduate students (also referred to as Benchmarks), steps that lead to the Masters and Doctorate degrees in Neuroscience, assistantships, and termination (voluntary and involuntary) from the Neuroscience Program.

The objectives are to have the student become capable of independent research and scholarship. The benchmarks reflect this progression of the student during the graduate education. Benchmarks include the student learning: 1) the relevant literature and having a broad appreciation of neuroscience, 2) research design and experimental techniques to address the research question, 3) scientific writing and the publication process, 4) collegiality and scientific ethics; 5) communication skills, for research presentations and teaching, 6) independence.
