Neuroscience Careers

Neuroscience Advising

Students choosing Neuroscience as a field of the major develop an approved plan for the major with a department advisor who must approve the original plan for the major and any exceptions to the stated requirements for the major. Students should also consult a department advisor when planning the final term’s elections to ensure that all requirements for the major have been met and to secure an advisor’s approval on a Major Release form.

About the Program in Neuroscience

Undergraduate Research

Independent research is a wonderful opportunity to take an active role in studying what you enjoy! Students participate in a lab, field, or modeling project in which they themselves have a say in the design, implementation, and interpretation of experiments.

Neuroscience Program Policies

Neuroscience Students Association (NSA)

The Neuroscience Students Association is a student organization for students with an interest in neuroscience. This organization provides networking opportunities, seminars, and exposure to the depth of neuroscience. The organization also aims to actively participate in service to its community and provide the public with information on neuroscience, health, and general science topics.

Society of Biology Students

The SBS is an organization of students at the University of Michigan who are interested in the Biological sciences. It is sponsored and funded jointly by the departments of Molecular, Cellular & Developmental Biology and Ecology & Evolutionary Biology.

Biology Student Alliance

The Biology Student Alliance is a student organization intended for Neuroscience, CMB, Biology, Plant Biology, Microbiology and Biochemistry concentrators, as well as any pre-med or science-oriented students who are interested in learning more about MCDB-related topics. BSA provides opportunities for undergraduates to enhance their learning in the natural sciences and gain exposure to various careers in scientific research and health-related fields.

Student Society for Stem Cell Research (SSSCR)

The Student Society for Stem Cell Research (U-M Ann Arbor Chapter) was founded in August of 2003. We are an international network dedicated to the advancement of scientific research for cures. We believe that stem cell research will revolutionize the field of medicine.

Neuroscience Graduate Program

The Graduate Program at the University of Michigan was constituted in 1971, making it the longest-standing neuroscience graduate program in the United States. We are a collegial and interactive group of 60+ students and 120 faculty that perform research across the breadth of the neuroscience field.
