The Neuroscience Graduate Program at The University of Vermont emphasizes rigorous training in neuroscience-related research and prepares students for a variety of science related careers in addition to tenure-stream academic careers. We provide training in multidisciplinary research and scientific survival skills so that our graduates are effective Stewards of Neuroscience.
- The rigorous first year curriculum includes Neural Science, Human Structure and Function (a combined physiology and pharmacology focused course), and Cell Biology. These courses integrate information from basic science with translational and medical knowledge to teach students about how the nervous system regulates human physiology and behavior.
- The second year curriculum consists of Statistics, the Biobehavioral Proseminar (which covers learning and memory), Responsible Conduct in Research, and two advanced selectives in the field of the chosen dissertation project.
