The Department of Psychology offers a special 4+1 Bachelor + Master of Science in Neuroscience to highly qualified undergraduate students who are Neuroscience majors at the University of Delaware. This program allows exceptional students to accelerate their undergraduate studies in Neuroscience to also earn a Master’s Degree in Neuroscience (30 graduate credits) in five years of full-time study at the University of Delaware, with a savings of about 50% in expenses and time required for a traditional Master of Science Degree. Students would normally apply for conditional acceptance in the second semester of their junior year (with a GPA > 3.25, two letters of recommendation, and having identified a faculty research mentor). Thereafter, the student will: a) be mentored into an accelerated undergraduate neuroscience curriculum that includes a senior-year research project, b) satisfy their senior-year evaluation of “good standing” and make formal application to the Graduate School, then c) complete a graduate summer research internship (six credits) and thesis proposal, d) complete a fifth-year curriculum of graduate studies in neuroscience, and e) submit their Master’s Thesis research and defend it orally.
