Program Overview:

The Department of Psychology offers a special 4+1 Bachelor + Master of Science in Neuroscience to highly qualified undergraduate students who are extant 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 5 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 begin working in a research lab at least one year prior to applying.  Applications are due in December of the applicant’s senior year.  Upon being admited to the program, a student would then complete a graduate summer research internship (6 credits) and thesis proposal; complete a fifth-year curriculum of graduate studies in neuroscience; and submit their Master’s Thesis research and defend it orally.
