Information about the Cognitive Neuroscience Graduate Major

The Cognitive Neuroscience Ph.D. Program is intended for students who wish to study cognitive processes based on their underlying neural systems. It provides a strong background in both systems-level neuroscience and cognitive psychology and allows students to develop integrative research interests that cross domains. Students admitted in either the Behavioral Neuroscience or Cognitive Areas may complete this program. They will remain in their area of admission for administrative purposes. For a list of Required Courses please see the Psychology Handbook.
