Prospective Students

Admissions Process

People may apply to either the Neuroscience Graduate Program at Brown University or the Brown-NIH Partnership Program or both. Applicants to the Neuroscience Graduate Program or the Graduate Partnership Program are expected to have an undergraduate degree in a component discipline of neuroscience such as biology, psychology, neurobiology, chemistry, physics, applied mathematics, engineering, or computer science. The Neuroscience Graduate Program and Graduate Partnership Program do not have any specific course requirements for successful admission. Students who join either program take courses at Brown to fill gaps in their scientific knowledge. We encourage applications from members of underrepresented minority groups and those with disabilities. More information about programs at Brown University designed to enhance diversity in the Biological and Biomedical Sciences can be found the Office of Graduate and Postdoctoral Studies website.
