The Undergraduate Program attracts a large and academically successful group of majors, the majority of whom go on to medical or graduate school. The faculty and graduate students form a substantial component of the campus-wide Center for Neuroscience at the University of Pittsburgh (CNUP), an organization that serves the entire community of neuroscientists at Pitt and is the administrative unit of a world-class doctoral program in neuroscience.
Our doctoral training program in the CNUP is thriving. We draw from a large pool of excellent applicants, and our students develop first-rate academic and research skills as they progress towards a PhD degree. Our small Masters Degree program is also thriving and our undergraduate program similarly is excellent. The major strengths of the Department of Neuroscience are its personnel—faculty, graduate students, research associates, and staff—and their commitment to excellence in teaching, training, and research.
