Neuroscience Electives

Neurobiology | Computational Neuroscience | Cognitive and Behavioral Neuroscience
The neuroscience elective courses provide more detailed knowledge of Neuroscience, and provide the depth needed to support graduate research. The list of elective courses will evolve with the research interests of the Neuroscience faculty participants. The M.S. will require at least four elective credits and the Ph.D. will require at least 25. Other courses may be required as determined by the students committee and with approval of the program director. The listing of current core and suggested elective courses are as follows:
