About the Program

The University of Arizona offers a Ph.D.in Neuroscience through the Graduate Interdisciplinary Program. The Program is designed to provide students with the knowledge and tools that they will need to embark on careers as educators and researchers in the field of neuroscience. Students participate in designing their own individually tailored programs that provide a thorough base of knowledge in the many facets of neuroscience as well as depth in chosen areas of specialization. Because of the breadth of expertise represented by faculty, students have access to education and research training opportunities in areas ranging from molecular, cellular, systems, behavioral, cognitive, theoretical, and clinical neuroscience.
