Research for Credit

The Undergraduate Program in Neuroscience provides two different opportunities to earn academic credit for research. 1.) A directed study (an independent semester-long research project) and 2.) A senior thesis (a year-long, original, research project that culminates in a thesis paper, a defense presentation, and earning departmental honors in the major). See below for more information on each experience and the required applications.
