--> Letter to Prospective Students
The neuroscience curriculum at Ohio University provides students with the tools they need to embark on a career in neuroscience and help meet the challenges of this exciting field. A combination of coursework and research experiences allows students to learn how the nervous system works, from the molecular level all the way up to mechanisms underlying complex behaviors and cognitive processes. The Neuroscience Program also provides stipends and support for summer research between the junior and senior year.
Two options are available for students interested in undergraduate training in Neuroscience.
- The Department of Biological Sciences offers a B.S. degree in biology with an emphasis in neuroscience. Details about admission and policies can be found in the Undergraduate Catalog. Students are encouraged to apply online.
- The Honors Tutorial College (HTC) now offers a B.S. degree in Neuroscience. The HTC is a unique and exciting approach to undergraduate education. Modern neuroscience is a highly interdisciplinary field that brings together ideas and methodologies from a variety of traditional disciplines such as biology, chemistry, psychology, philosophy, physics and mathematics. The Honors Tutorial Program in Neuroscience provides students with a solid interdisciplinary foundation in modern Neuroscience and allows them to pursue their individual interests within one of four major sub disciplines:
The program is designed to provide maximum flexibility while ensuring that students are fully prepared for admission into the graduate or professional school of their choice.
