NESC 3960: Research in Neuroscience
Credits: 3
Students in Neuroscience major are expected to participate in active research, supervised by a faculty research mentor. The course grade is based on 10 hours/week lab work toward achieving term goals that are determined individually at the beginning of the term. Students are expected to submit a Term Plan one month after the first day of classes and a Progress Report two weeks before the last day of classes.
COGS 3960: Cognitive Science Research
Credits: 3
This course aims to provide faculty-supervised research experience. A faculty mentor should be identified before enrollment. S/U grading. May be repeated for credit. Prerequisites: Faculty supervisor permission.
NESC 3995: Research in Neuroscience
Credits: 3
This course provides opportunities for first and second year students who have not yet declared a major to engage in supervised research activities.
NESC 4970: Distinguished Majors Thesis
Credits: 3
A two-semester course in which the student prepares a thesis under the supervision of a Neuroscience Graduate Program faculty member. The thesis must be based on empirical research conducted by the student. Prerequisite: Participant in Neuroscience DMP.
