UHart’s Masters of Science in Neuroscience is interdisciplinary in nature and provides experiences at the interface of biology, psychology, and other natural sciences.
The program is designed to meet the needs of both full-time and part- time non-traditional students with most courses and laboratories offered in the evenings.

The neuroscience program is unique because it provides research opportunities in clinical neuroscience, neurophysiology, and basic neuroscience. If you are interested in doing a thesis project, you will be directed toward instructors/laboratories that work in the area of your interest. We have had great success placing students in laboratories in the biology and psychology departments here at the University of Hartford, as well as in top-notch laboratories at the UCONN Health Center and Trinity College.

Upon completion of our neuroscience graduate program, our students have gone on to high quality doctoral programs in Connecticut and in Florida, Minnesota, and Pennsylvania. In addition, our alumni are working in careers ranging from laboratory research technicians to sales representatives for pharmaceutical companies. Many of our students are practicing professionals in physical therapy, occupational therapy, and other areas who just want to advance their education and improve the quality of their care for others.
