The M.S. requires a minimum 32 credits and the Ph.D. requires a minimum 78 credits. The Neuroscience program assumes the usual graduate full time load of at least nine credits per semester.
Incoming students admitted with background deficiencies will take background courses. For example, biology majors with little knowledge of computation will take at least one background course in computer science. The specific required background courses will be determined by each students graduate committee with the approval of the program director. Note that credits from courses numbered 300 and below do not count toward the Neuroscience degree requirements, though they may be required to fulfill deficiencies.
