View the NEU Concentration Course of Study.

You should plan on completing NEU 201, NEU 202, MAT 103 and MAT 104 by the Spring of your sophomore year. You do not need to take NEU 201 before NEU 202. In your junior year, you should take NEU 314 (Fall) and NEU 350 (Spring). All other courses can be taken anytime during your stint here at Princeton.

The Departmental Representative (Professor Asif Ghazanfar).

Yes, but there are two caveats. First, it must be an elective and the course cannot be a survey-style neuroscience course like NEU 201 or NEU 202; you must take those here at Princeton. Second, you must share, and have approved, the course syllabus with the Departmental Representative.

Studying abroad can be a wonderful opportunity. Below is a document provided by the Office of International Programs that contains links to some places that have neuroscience programs and their course offerings. Some of these courses may be used to fulfill your concentration elective requirements. [Note: You should always check with the NEU departmental representative before making any course selections.]

A selection of opportunities to study neuroscience abroad.


There are certainly other countries that you may want to check out; please consult with the Office of International Programs.

Unlikely. It would have to be a pretty significant project and you would have to find an interested co-advisor on the PNI faculty to help guide you through your work.

Possibly. Communicate with the Departmental Representative.

No, for NEU courses, but maybe for cognate electives. Communicate with Departmental Representative.

Yes, but the decision is made by the Math or Physics departments. We follow their placement decisions.

In addition to pursuing graduate or medical studies, there are many other career opportunities for individuals rigorously trained in neuroscience.
