Graduate Studies in Neuroscience

The graduate program in Neuroscience consists of the 1-year master's program for students who did not receive their B.S. from Tulane, the 4 + 1 master's program for students who received their B.S. from Tulane, and the Ph.D. program. Neuroscience accepts approximately 25 students into its master's program and 4-5 students into its Ph.D. program every year. The master's program prepares students for professional schools, continued graduate studies, and the work force, and the Ph.D. program prepares students for research-related careers in biomedical science. Students pursuing an advanced degree in Neuroscience benefit from a multidisciplinary education and training in the sciences of the brain and nervous system, including cell and molecular biology, neuropharmacology, neurophysiology, neuroanatomy, neuroendocrinology, and biological psychology.
