Neuroscience offers a dual-degree program that allows students to get both their bachelor's and master's degrees in five years.
The national neuroscience honor society, Nu Rho Psi, has named Georgia State “Chapter of the Year” three times.
Major in a Minute
The Neuroscience Institute is an independent academic department consisting of 24 faculty members in its core faculty. It includes more than 50 associate faculty who engage in research and teaching in neuroscience and related disciplines in many departments across the university.
These additional faculty and the institute’s partnerships with their home departments provide the Neuroscience Institute with a diverse, interdisciplinary perspective to its research and educational programs, and help it fulfill its mission of supporting neuroscience across Georgia State.
Neuroscience by the Numbers
The field of Neuroscience is enthusiastically multidisciplinary, as is the Neuroscience Institute. Associate faculty can be found in Biology, Chemistry, Computer Science, Law, Mathematics & Statistics, Music, Nursing, Education, Religious Studies, Philosophy, Physical Therapy, Physics & Astronomy, Sociology and Psychology. These faculty work on basic neuroscience questions as well as medical and societal issues. Interdepartmental collaborations are promoted through workshops, retreats and grants administered by the Brains & Behavior Area of Focus. Through its core and associate faculty, the Neuroscience Institute is constantly exploring new avenues in education and research.
Associate faculty from 14 departments across the university add breadth to the Neuroscience Institute’s academic and research offerings.
Undergraduate majors, 65 graduate students and 24 core faculty.
Undergraduate and 85 graduate course offerings.
a year average in research funding by Neuroscience core faculty over the last four years.
The Neuroscience Institute provides valuable service to the community and beyond. Faculty and staff, for example, run a highly successful program for high school students in the Atlanta region.
Neuroscience asks how the brain and body produce our sensations, our thoughts, our behavior and the behavior of other animals. Neuroscientists address fundamental and health-related questions that affect every aspect of our lives and society. To answer them, neuroscience bridges the biological, chemical, physical, behavioral and computational sciences, as well as philosophy, engineering and medicine.
