These courses must include those needed to satisfy the requirements for the Neuroscience BS degree plus 3 additional electives chosen from the Group 1, 2, or 3 electives listed in the bulletin. Of the 10 Group 1, 2, or 3 electives required for the BS/MS degree, at least 6 must be at the graduate level, and completed with a grade of B- or above. In addition, BS/MS students must do senior honors research, i. e., take two semesters of NEUR 99 and receive departmental honors in neuroscience. It is recommended that students meet with the Neuroscience Undergraduate Advising Head no later than February 1 of the student’s junior year.
