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. 

Up to 3 pre-approved Neuroscience Research credits can be applied to the major. Neuroscience Research credits may be taken across multiple semesters, with a total of 3 Neuroscience Research credits satisfying one track course. Four pre-approved NEUR479 credits in the same faculty research laboratory can satisfy the lab requirement, but do not count towards the five track course requirement. 

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.
