The goal of the program is to provide highly motivated undergraduate students with sophisticated training in neuroscience, and the opportunity to build critical thinking and research skills.

Why Wake Forest? 

Students will gain graduate course credit and an enhanced research experience that will provide them with a competitive edge to apply to graduate, professional schools or to pursue non-academic careers that require research expertise in the life sciences.

The program is jointly sponsored by the Wake Forest University College of Arts and Sciences, and the Graduate School of Arts and Science. It offers Wake Forest University undergraduates pursuing a BS or BA degree in Wake Forest College of Arts and Sciences with a minor in Neuroscience the opportunity to earn a research-oriented MS degree with a 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.
