In addition to completing the core sequence of Cell and Molecular Neuroscience and Systems Neuroscience, students in the Neuroscience Training Program will take at least one course from each of two categories while in graduate school, Cell/Molecular/Developmental and Systems/Behavior, for a total of two additional courses on or relating to neuroscience. A list of available and qualifying courses in each category will be drawn up each year by the Curriculum Committee and made available to the students. Faculty are encouraged to offer new courses and to notify the committee as they become available. If students wish to propose courses for consideration, they must be approved by the Curriculum Committee before the course is taken. Please e-mail Curriculum Committee Chair Peter Lipton with any requests. Please click on the drop-downs below to view the list of currently approved courses for meeting the Mid-Level Course Requirement.
