Program Requirements

In order to graduate, students in the M.S. Program in Cognitive Neuroscience must fulfill the following requirements:


Students accepted to the M.S. Program in Cognitive Neuroscience will conduct research in a lab as part of their thesis. We will try to match students with advisors based on their research interests and preferences, as well as by how many students each faculty member will be able to accommodate into their labs. We encourage students to at least meet with several faculty members prior to selecting their advisors. Although we do not have a formal rotation system in place for master’s students, if a student decides after one semester that he or she would like to do research in a different lab, then we will try our best to facilitate such a switch. Students are also welcome to rotate through different labs provided the faculty are willing to allow the students to do so. However, this may slow progress on data collection for the thesis.
