Admissions — Neuroscience Program

The Neuroscience Program is accredited to award a Ph.D. degree only. There is not a Master's Degree within the Neuroscience Program. There are two mechanisms for admission:

  1. You can apply directly to the Neuroscience Program; or
  2. You can apply for an undifferentiated status in the graduate school.

The application process is the same for both mechanisms.
