Application deadlines -

This program is offered fully online.


The Graduate Certificate in Aging and Neuroscience offers students the opportunity to do graduate‐level study that focuses on Neuroscience, Aging and Brain Repair. Students study anatomy, physiology, pathology, and molecular biology of the nervous system, and how these disciplines relate to behavioral sciences and modern therapeutic advances.

The graduate certificate offers students flexibility in class scheduling and focused course work. Graduates will develop the specialized skills needed to work in research and/or clinical environments, in hospital, laboratory, industry, or university settings, where specialized knowledge of Neuroscience is required. In addition to medical residents, the certificate is also intended for students who are not yet committed to pursuing a graduate degree. It is anticipated that some students will apply for master’s or Ph.D. degrees offered by USF’s Health Science Center.
