Program

Welcome! The Graduate Program at the University of Michigan was constituted in 1971, making it the longest-standing neuroscience graduate program in the United States. We are a collegial and interactive group of 60+ students and 120 faculty that perform research across the breadth of the neuroscience field. Neuroscience graduate students on this campus form a cohesive group, which promotes interactions among the faculty, making the Graduate Program the nexus of the neuroscience community. Graduates receive a Ph.D. in Neuroscience, which provides tremendous flexibility in choosing one’s career path. There are more than 100 alumni of our Program, and these graduates work in academic research, industrial research and development, academic medicine and biotechnology. Our program captures the excitement and interaction intrinsic to the field of neuroscience.

Students can seek admission to the Neuroscience Program by three different routes – direct application to the Neuroscience Program, application via the Program in Biomedical Sciences and application via the Medical Scientist Training Program.
