About

The department offers a variety of graduate courses including human physiology, membrane transport, intercellular communication, ion channels, and human neurophysiology, as well as seminar and special topics courses. While the department does not offer a Ph.D. in physiology and neuroscience, a continuation of graduate  studies with our faculty-by students from this or any other graduate program-may lead to a Doctor of Philosophy (Ph.D.) Degree in Biomedical Sciences.Programs of graduate study leading to a Master of Science in Physiology and Neuroscience provide students with a broad knowledge of physiology and neuroscience as well as concentrated experience in one specific area of specialization. The first two semesters involve 17 credit hours, which include required departmental and other courses determined in consultation with the student’s advisor. Research activities begin in the spring of the first year with a lab rotation. The second program year involves 13 credit hours with emphasis on research. Completed research is presented in written thesis form at the end of the second year, with a public oral defense.

Academic Requirements

Applicants for graduate programs must have the equivalent of a bachelor’s degree with a minimum GPA equivalent to 3 on a US 4.0 grading scale. Admitted applicants typically have an undergraduate GPA of or better on a 4.0 scale. No exam grade should be lower than 4.5 (European grade scale) or D (American grade scale).

Your GPA (Grade Point Average) is calculated using the grades that you received in each course, and is determined by the points assigned to each grade (e.g. for the US grading scale from A-F).

  • The recommended range represents scores typically accepted at this institution. Scores outside the range may still be considered.

    The GRE® General Test is a widely administered admissions test that measures the skills needed in today’s graduate and business school programs worldwide. The GRE® General Test contains three sections – Verbal Reasoning, Quantitative Reasoning, and Analytical Writing. Three scores are reported: a Verbal Reasoning score on a 130 – 170 score scale in one-point increments, a Quantitative Reasoning score on a 130 – 170 score scale in one-point increments, and an Analytical Writing score on a 0 – 6 score scale in half-point increments.

    GRE should exceed 305 if the applicant’s GPA is lower than 3.0

  • BA, BS or equivalent
  • 3 letters of recommendation
  • Personal Statement
