Complete at least 5 courses (15 credits minimum), including at least 3 courses from within one track. One of these 5 courses must be a Lab course. 

Neuroscience Research credits [NEUR379(H) OR NEUR479(H)*] may be used to satisfy 1 of 5 track courses. A total of 3 credits of NEUR379(H) must be earned to utilize research as a track course. (Neuroscience Research credits may be taken across multiple semesters.) *Four pre-approved NEUR479(H) credits in the same research lab can satisfy the lab requirement, but then would not count towards the 5 track course requirement. A maximum of 3 credits of NEUR379(H) or NEUR479(H) can be taken within a single semester.

Click the boxes below for the updated list of approved Neuroscience track courses for the Neuroscience Advanced Program major requirement. Courses are typically offered in the semesters listed below, but are subject to change. Please, visit schedule of classes for the most up to date semester offerings.
