Three years in the making, the State Council of  Higher Education in Virginia (SCHEV) voted to approve the new PhD program which will be housed in the School of Neuroscience.

This new 96 credit hour program will provide students with a strong foundation in both classic and contemporary aspects of neuroscience at the molecular, cellular and systems level.

Intensive ‘hands-on’ research will enable student to contribute to new neuroscience discovery.

We will begin accepting applications in late August for enrollment in Fall 2021.
