Facilities of this multidisciplinary program include those maintained by the participating programs in the Colleges of Pharmacy, Liberal Arts, Natural Sciences, Engineering, Education, and Communication.
Neuroscience encompasses behavioral neuroscience, neurobiology, neuropharmacology, and cellular/molecular neuroscience. Studies in these areas are centered primarily in the graduate programs in psychology, pharmacy (medicinal chemistry and pharmacology), biological sciences, biomedical engineering, kinesiology and health education, microbiology, biochemistry, linguistics, communication sciences and disorders, and botany.
The following faculty members served on the Graduate Studies Committee in the spring semester 1998-1999.

The requirements of the Graduate School for admission into a Doctor of Philosophy degree program must be met. However, the qualifications of most admitted applicants exceed these minimum requirements. All applicants must hold a bachelor's degree from an accredited college or university, usually in biological science, chemistry, experimental psychology, kinesiology, pharmacy, zoology, or biomedical engineering. Undergraduate preparation should include one year of chemistry, one year of biology, mathematics through calculus, one semester of cell biology, and one semester of experimental psychology. However, students without some of these prerequisites may be admitted on the condition that they make up any deficiencies during the first two years of study.
Master of Arts. The master's degree student must complete thirty semester hours of coursework and must submit a thesis based on individual research. The thirty hours include the core courses in neuroscience, Neuroscience 382T, 383T, 687K, and 390P.
Doctor of Philosophy. At least eighty-one semester hours of coursework are required, including Neuroscience 382T, 383T, 687K, and 390P. One goal of this requirement is to help the student prepare for the qualifying examinations, taken in the fall of the third year.
