Masters of Philosophy (MPhil) in Neuroscience at University of St. Andrews - 1 year

Building upon the successful Brain StEm program, Emory and St. Andrews are offering a 4+1 BS (Emory) MPhil (St. Andrews) research-based NBB degree combination.  To qualify, Emory NBB majors must have a 3.5 GPA and have an invitation from one of the St. Andrews participating professors, or graduate from Emory with honors in NBB.  The first year of the normally two-year MPhil program will be waived, allowing qualifying NBB BS graduates to complete their Masters degree in one year. Contact the NBB office for further information.

Students interested in the MPhil have the option of applying for: The Robert T. Jones, Jr. Fellowship and the Bobby Jones Scholarship

The Bobby Jones Fellowship funds one Emory student or graduate each year to study at University of St. Andrews in a select group of fields.  Recipients are part of a masters or PhD programs in the School of Divinity, School of International Relations or Neuroscience.
