The collaborative specialization in Neuroscience provides a unique opportunity for students engaged in research in the rapidly expanding field of Neuroscience by permitting students to combine their departmental degree with multidisciplinary exposure to the field of Neuroscience. This unique combination of multidisciplinary studies provides students with the best possible foundation for academic careers in Neuroscience and related areas. The collaborative specialization includes participation from core faculty in the following departments: Animal Biosciences, Biomedical Science, Clinical Studies, Human Health & Nutritional Sciences, Integrative Biology, Molecular & Cellular Biology, Pathobiology, Population Medicine, and Psychology.
In addition to courses required by their home department, students enrolled in the collaborative specialization in Neuroscience must complete: NEUR*6000 Principles in Neuroscience and NEUR*6100 Seminar in Neuroscience. Students must register for NEUR*6100 every fall and winter semester that they are in the collaborative specialization.
