M.S. Program in Cognitive Neuroscience Program Overview

The M.S. Program in Cognitive Neuroscience was approved by the State of New York in November, 2017, and the inaugural class of students began their coursework and research in Fall 2018. This is the first M.S. Program in Cognitive Neuroscience in the United States that focuses on cognitive neuroscience, which examines the neural basis of cognitive functions, including perception, attention, memory, language, and decision-making.

This program prepares our graduates to go on to doctoral programs for further research or get jobs in varied industries, including the biotechnology sector, data analytics, medical imaging, pharmaceuticals, and many other related fields.
