Neuroscience, Ph.D., Neuroethics Concentration


Students in the Neuroscience Ph.D. program can earn a concentration in Neurothics. This interdisciplinary field considers how ethical theories inform neuroscientific practice and how neuroscientific discoveries inform ethical theorizing. Neuroethics Ph.D. students must satisfy all requirements described above for the Ph.D. degree in Neuroscience plus take 12 hours of coursework in Neuroethics to satisfy the concentration, and receive a grade of B or better in each of these courses.

  • One course on the elective list for the concentration (any with NEUR 6000-level numbers) may be used to satisfy the Neuroscience Elective requirement as described in 1b. above.
  • One course on the elective list for the concentration (any with NEUR 8000-level numbers) may be used to satisfy 3 of the required 7-8 hours of the topics/concepts/seminar requirement as described in 1e. above.
  • The additional 6 hours in Neuroethics courses can be taken in lieu of additional credit hours in research (NEUR 9910) or directed readings (NEUR 9920) that current Neuroscience doctoral students currently take in excess of the minimum 54 credit hours required for the Ph.D.
