The Center for Developmental Neuroscience and Developmental Disabilities at the College and the New York State Institute for Basic Research on Developmental Disabilities offer a broad interdisciplinary program leading to the Master of Science degree. Courses integrate relevant subject matter in the areas of biology, chemistry, mathematics, philosophy, psychology, and sociology, and students have a unique opportunity to explore both neuroscientific and applied aspects of the normally and abnormally developing brain, as well as recent advances in the cognitive sciences.
The program consists of 36 credits including 30 credits in coursework and six credits of thesis research, an oral preliminary examination, and a thesis defense. A faculty thesis committee will approve the content and style of the Master's thesis. The thesis committee will consist of four members, with at least 2 full-time CSI faculty (including at least one member from the Biology, the Chemistry or the Psychology Department)
