Thank you for your interest in the new five-year dual degree in Neuroscience. Our program offers Wake Forest University undergraduates pursuing a B.S. or B.A. degree in Wake Forest College of Arts and Sciences with a minor in Neuroscience the opportunity to earn a research-oriented M.S. degree with concentration in Neuroscience with one additional year of study. The program builds on the existing Neuroscience Minor and utilizes existing course and research opportunities associated with the Graduate School’s Neuroscience Program.
Our goal is to provide highly motivated undergraduate students with sophisticated training in neuroscience, and the opportunity to build critical thinking and research skills. Students will gain graduate course credit and an enhanced research experience that will provide them with a competitive edge to apply to graduate or professional schools, or to pursue non-academic careers that require research expertise in the life sciences and Neuroscience.
