The USciences Neuroscience program features interdisciplinary training that few colleges can match: Our program faculty are experts in several areas, allowing you to examine the nervous system across a variety of theoretical and clinical contexts. USciences is also a small university with huge benefits, as you’ll study alongside devoted faculty members who empower you to develop innovative solutions to far-reaching problems.
What Sets Us Apart?
- Conduct cutting-edge research as early as your first year. You drive the research
components, work with renowned faculty, and have access to state-of-the-art microscopy,
model animal systems, EEG technology, and modeling software and simulations.
- Tailor your neuroscience degree to your interests while acquiring foundational knowledge.
Select courses from our three tracks to customize the curriculum.
- Enjoy one-on-one mentorship from our faculty. Their expertise extends across math,
physics, and statistics as well as biological, clinical, psychological, behavioral,
pharmaceutical, and theoretical areas.
- Connections with nearby research and medical institutions offer you opportunities
for hands-on experiences. Our faculty’s extensive contacts include collaborations
at Drexel University, the University of Pennsylvania, the Franklin Institute, the
Monell Chemical Senses Center, and other academic, government, and private industry
- Our interdisciplinary neuroscience degree program prepares you for the full spectrum
of careers in a quickly growing field. You’ll also be ready for graduate, medical,
and health professional schools.
- Lessen the total time and cost to complete a USciences MS or PhD—the integrated graduate credit program allows qualified undergraduates to take up to 15 additional credits of graduate coursework at no extra cost
What is Neuroscience?
The field of neuroscience explores the nervous system’s structure and function—and how it regulates almost all aspects of organisms, including our thoughts, behavior, sense of self, and response to environments.
The focus of neuroscientists’ work ranges: Some study how specific functions work
in relation to the nervous system, while others research cellular processes, the underlying
causes of drug addiction, brain activity during seizures, novel drug discovery, treatment
methods for neurological disorders, or new clinical approaches.
