About the Program

The primary goal of the doctoral program in neuroscience is to provide students with a strong educational and research foundation in cellular, cognitive, and behavioral neuroscience. Students will apply critical concepts in neuroscience to understanding normal and disordered processes of sensation, movement, cognition, language, and communication across the lifespan. This goal will be accomplished through a core set of neuroscience courses, advanced electives, and laboratory experiences.

Students in the neuroscience doctoral program are expected to align themselves with a focus area. Currently, these include Translational Neuroscience, Educational Neuroscience, and Lifespan Neuroscience.
