Academics

academics-landing1Tulane majors in Neuroscience pursue an interdepartmental curriculum. Majors fulfill the requirements of a premedical curriculum, which also is recommended for admission to graduate study in Neuroscience and related fields. A Bachelor in Science in Neuroscience from Tulane establishes an excellent foundation for medical school and/or graduate school. Students who earn the B.S. degree in Neuroscience at Tulane are eligible for admission to the M.S. degree program that offers an additional year of study in our 4+1 program. Many graduates of the 4+1 program in Neuroscience advance to doctoral programs in Neuroscience and related areas, or are accepted to medical school. Tulane University offers a 1-year Master of Science degree in Neuroscience for students with baccalaureate degrees from other institutions as well.

The Neuroscience Ph.D. Program is an interdisciplinary graduate program comprised of graduate students and faculty from 13 departments across three schools at Tulane University, including the Schools of Science and Engineering, Medicine and Liberal Arts. The Neuroscience faculty research programs are well funded by grants from federal and state funding agencies in the areas of stress disorders, sensory-motor disorders, pain mechanisms, cortical structure and function, signal transduction mechanisms, neuropeptides, learning and memory, and developmental neurobiology. Graduate students perform cutting edge research in a small and productive research environment that fosters intimate instruction and training leading to publication in top scientific journals.
