About

Tulane University offers a master of science degree in Neuroscience for students with baccalaureate degrees from other institutions.

Overview

Overview

Students in the Neuroscience program offered by Tulane University take 30 credits of courses relevant to their interests in Neuroscience and related fields. The mission of the M.S. program is to prepare students for admission to doctoral programs in the neurosciences,  careers in neuroscience-related fields, and for admission to medical schools. Thus, students who already have received their medical training are discouraged from applying, as they are overqualified for this program. Completion of the M.S. program does not guarantee acceptance to Tulane's Ph.D. programs or medical school.

The purpose of the 4+1 M.S. Program in Neuroscience is to provide Tulane students with training at the graduate level for one additional year beyond the baccalaureate degree. Students pursuing an advanced degree in Neuroscience benefit from a multidisciplinary education and training in the sciences of the brain and nervous system, including cell and molecular biology, neuropharmacology, neurophysiology, neuroanatomy, neuroendocrinology, and biological psychology. 

Students accepted to the 4+1 program may follow one of two tracks toward completion of an M.S. in Neuroscience.

For the Thesis Track option (24 credit hours), students will take courses relevant to their interests in neuroscience or related fields and complete an empirical masters thesis under the supervision of an adviser who is a member of the Neuroscience Graduate program. Because completion of an empirical masters thesis normally requires more than one year, students accepted into the 4+1 program must be active in research at the undergraduate level. Each student will be encouraged to develop a masters thesis that is a continuation or extension of his or her undergraduate honors thesis or independent study. The thesis adviser will provide guidance in the selection of courses and in all aspects of the masters thesis. For the Non-Thesis Track option (30 credit hours), students will take courses relevant to their interests in neuroscience or related fields but are not required to complete an empirical masters thesis.
