Barnard students have a variety of opportunities to conduct neuroscience research. While a few opportunities are restricted to NSB majors, many others are open to all students who want to explore neuroscience.
- Independent Study. For-credit, supervised research available in labs in our department or outside. For more information visit here.
- Senior Thesis. A year-long program offered to NSB majors, which involves the completion of an independent research project and the participation in the senior seminar.
- Summer Research Institute (SRI). This program sponsors summer research projects students conduct under the guidance of a faculty mentor and provides summer funding and subsidized campus housing. For more information about SRI, visit Barnard's website. Opportunities through the NSB Department can be found here.
- Joining a lab. Participating in lab meetings or helping with a research project represents valid experiences for learning about a lab and understanding if a lab fits your interests well.
