All students must meet the Requirements for the Master's Degree
The Neuroscience Graduate Program awards M.S. degrees only to students who have matriculated into the Ph.D. program but whose academic and research progress is deemed by their advisory committee to be suitable for a M.S. rather than a Ph.D. degree, or the student requests to leave the program prior to completion of the Ph.D. degree. Terminal M.S. degrees are not automatically offered to students leaving the program prematurely. Students must be recommended for the M.S. degree by their advisory committee and are required to complete the minimum course and research requirements for the M.S. as defined by the Graduate College and the Neuroscience Graduate Program.
