How to choose the best program for you

Berkeley offers several PhD programs in which students can receive training in neuroscience and conduct neuroscience research. This reflects the highly multidisciplinary research environment at Berkeley.  In each program, students can choose their thesis mentor among a broad range of many of the same Neuroscience faculty.  This website provides links to the main graduate programs on campus in which you can do neuroscience research.  The programs differ by broad intellectual focus, size and coursework. There are also  differences in qualifying exams and details about the rotations. Applicants can only apply to one program, so choose the one that's best for you. Please contact faculty and/or individual program managers if you have any questions!
