Graduate Program

Neuroscience and Cognitive Science at BGSU are interdisciplinary programs that are administered by several different departments under the umbrella of the JP Scott Center for Neuroscience, Mind and Behavior . These include the Department of Biological Sciences, the Department of Communication Disorders, the Department of Psychology and the Department of Philosophy. Students interested in graduate work in neuroscience and/or cognitive science should:

  • Learn about the wide range of faculty research interests in the neural and cognitive sciences at BGSU.
  • Determine which faculty members and Center affiliated department are best suited for your particular goals. Once you have selected the faculty and department that best match your specific interests, it is a good idea to contact individual faculty to see if they might be interested in taking you on as a graduate student. Faculty members are looking for motivated and capable students who are a good fit for their lab and who can advance their research agenda. Although individual faculty cannot admit or reject applicants, they do have input to the decision-making process.
  • Follow the application procedures outlined by the department you have selected for graduate study. For further information about the application process, visit the home page of the appropriate department and look for ‘prospective students/graduate program' links for detailed information on how to apply for various graduate programs in that department.
