Neuroscience


Return to Areas of Study Return to: Areas of Study


The McMaster Neuroscience Graduate Program is a collaborative partnership among the Faculties of Science, Health Sciences, Engineering and Social Sciences. All four faculties are within a few minutes walking distance, facilitating interactions among graduate students, postdoctoral students, and faculty. Our goal is to attract the brightest graduate minds available each year to the field of neuroscience, by providing meaningful research opportunities in a collaborative, resource-rich environment. We offer programs in five research areas: Cellular & Molecular Neuroscience; Clinical & Health Neuroscience; Cognitive Neuroscience; Computational Neuroscience and Systems & Behavioural Neuroscience. Programs offered at the Master’s level include research project, coursework and thesis requirements, leading to a Master of Science degree in Neuroscience. Ph.D. programs include research project, coursework, seminar, comprehensive and thesis requirements, leading to a Doctoral degree in Neuroscience.
