Welcome to the Behavioral Neuroscience Graduate Program at the Department of Psychology and Neuroscience at University of North Carolina Chapel Hill. Our faculty focus on understanding the biological basis of behavior by conducting research using state-of-the-art experimental approaches.
The Ph.D. program in Psychology is designed to provide students with the knowledge, skills, and judgment needed to become active contributors at the highest-level to research, teach, and provide public and professional service in the community.
The Behavioral Neuroscience doctoral program strikes a balance between course work, research, and teaching experiences. Students in our program receive training in the conceptual and empirical areas necessary to work on the biological basis of behavior. Learn more about our application process and curriculum.
