Integrative Physiology & Neuroscience

There are two educational programs within Integrative Physiology and Neuroscience:

  1. Neuroscience
  2. Comparative and Exercise Physiology
Each track has its own mandatory courses and suggested electives for students at the masters and doctoral levels.

M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in Neuroscience.
The M.S. program is intended for students who desire training for technical positions in academia or industry. It is designed to give students:
  1. A broad knowledge of the fundamentals of neuroscience
  2. the ability to present their research in formal settings
  3. research experience in the student's chosen specialty
The Ph.D. program is intended for students who plan to become academic faculty or to assume research positions in industry. It is designed to provide:
  1. A broad knowledge of the fundamentals of neuroscience
  2. training in a wide range of modern experimental techniques
  3. practice in the working skills a scientist requires
  4. mastery of the student's chosen research specialty
M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in Comparative and Exercise Physiology.
This program has special emphases in the areas of exercise, comparative, ecological and metabolic physiology, as well as skeletal muscle biology. The M.S. program is primarily intended for students who desire training for technical positions in academia, government or industry or who want to enter a professional program like medical or veterinary school. It is designed to give students:
  1. A broad knowledge of the fundamentals of physiology
  2. research experience in the student's chosen specialty
