Independent Study

• In addition to the formal courses offered in the Department of Neuroscience, there’s a great opportunity for undergrads to conduct independent work under the supervision of the faculty.

• There are two levels of independent work available: Independent Study Course and Independent Neuroscience Research. Each of these usually involves registering for NEUR1970.

• Honors in Neuroscience, described in detail on the Departmental website, requires maintenance of a distinguished academic record in course work of the concentration and completion of a Thesis meriting the Honors designation.
