COURSES

The standard courses for the one-year program (30 credits) are outlined below. MS in Integrative Neuroscience students are required to complete the core courses (19 credits), which are supplemented by elective courses (11 credits). Elective courses can be chosen to complement the core curriculum and the research internship, and can be selected from other GUMC departments. If there is a course of particular interest to a student that does not appear on the curriculum elective list, he/she can submit a request to the Program Director to designate the course as an approved elective. The list of required core courses and the pre-approved GUMC electives (credits, semester offered) are shown below.
