Behavioral and Neural Sciences Ph.D. ProgramThe goal of the Graduate Program in Behavioral and Neural Science (BNS) is to provide both outstanding training across the subdisciplines of neuroscience as well as to provide intensive instruction within one area of focus so that our graduates will be prepared for careers as academicians, educators and research scientists.
The BNS curriculum offers a broad range of courses that provide both breadth and depth. The Program has few required courses so that students may tailor their coursework to support their long-term goals. Students are trained to conduct independent research and to present and discuss their results both orally and in written form. Students also gain experience in both undergraduate and graduate teaching.
Center for Molecular & Behavioral NeuroscienceThe Center for Molecular and Behavioral Neuroscience (CMBN) was founded by the Board of Governors of Rutgers University in 1985 at the request of the Institute of Animal Behavior and the Biological Sciences and Chemistry Departments to establish the Rutgers-Newark campus as the University's Neuroscience Center.
