The BS/MS Program

Undergraduate students majoring in Neuroscience may be admitted to the four-year BS/MS program upon approval by the Neuroscience Undergraduate Advising Head.  To qualify for the BS/MS degree in neuroscience, students must complete courses totaling 152 credits. 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 7 must be at the graduate level, and completed with a grade of B- or above. BS/MS students must do senior honors research, i. e., take two semesters of NEUR 199 and receive departmental honors in neuroscience to count as one of the 7 graduate-level electives. It is recommended that students meet with the Neuroscience Undergraduate Advising Head no later than February 1 of the student’s junior year.
