Ph.D. in Neuroscience

After admission, students will be assigned an advisory committee upon entering the program to assist them in tailoring a curriculum that best fits their educational needs, research interests, and career plans.

As a general guideline, Ph.D. students are required to complete 60 credits. Cell Biology and Neuroscience doctoral students complete 35 dissertation credits and either 25 credits of graduate-level coursework beyond the Bachelor's degree or 10 credits of graduate-level coursework beyond the Master's degree. However, the exact proportion of the above-mentioned credits will be determined for each student by their advisory committee.
