Psychology and Neuroscience majors typically get
credit for research as Independent Study (PSYC366). The credits can vary
from 1-6 credits. Students and their faculty mentors agree on the
number of credits based on the number of hours worked per week. Students
who continue to work in a lab for a longer period of time could
potentially enroll in Advanced Research (PSYC466).
majors also often get credit for research as NSCI368 (Research) which is
a 3-credit course that involves a weekly seminar as well as
participation in a research lab. Students who continue to work in a lab
and have completed NSCI368 could potentially enroll in Advanced Research
