Undergraduate Study in Neuroscience - Letter to Prospective Students

Thank you for your interest in Neuroscience at Ohio University and welcome to our web site. I hope that you will be able to find all of the information you need here, but if not, please contact me. I am available via email and will be happy to answer any questions you have concerning our program, admissions, etc.

The Neuroscience Program was established in the late 1980s and quickly acquired the faculty and facilities needed to offer excellent educational and research experiences to undergraduate students interested in subjects ranging from behavior to the molecular machinery underlying brain function.

We are especially excited about the new Neuroscience degree in the Honors Tutorial College (HTC). This new degree is currently in the final planning stages and is expected to begin in fall 2007. The HTC program is unique in that it allows students to design their own program tailored to their particular interests. A large part of the instruction occurs in individual tutorials, and the program is designed to allow students to pursue a wide range of interdisciplinary topics in biology, psychology, philosophy, mathematics, and physics.

Ohio University is located in Athens, a small town situated in the foothills of southeastern Ohio, and largely surrounded by national forest. This rural setting is very attractive and also offers a wide variety of outdoor recreational opportunities.To learn more about the university, take a virtual tour.

As you deliberate your choice of undergraduate programs, we hope that you will visit Athens so that you can see our campus, our teaching and research facilities, and perhaps meet some of our faculty. You can coordinate a campus visit through the Office of Admissions, but please feel free to contact the Neuroscience Program office for additional information. We are confident that we can provide you with a successful and rewarding educational experience.
