Certificate in Neuroscience - Penn LPS Online


The online Certificate in Neuroscience allows you to explore biological, psychological, and clinical approaches to understand the nervous system as the biological basis of behavior. You will learn to apply studies in neurochemistry, neuroendocrinology, and pharmacology to gain deeper insight into behavior, focusing on areas including perception, social behavior, mental health, and the effect of drugs on the function of the central nervous system.

The Certificate in Neuroscience is a 4-course, 4 c.u.* credit program of study. To earn a certificate, students first complete NEUR 100: Introduction to Neuroscience, followed by any three neuroscience courses. Students who complete the basic online certificate may pursue an advanced certificate (6-course, 6 c.u.) by adding two additional neuroscience courses.

Penn LPS Online courses in the Certificate in Neuroscience are offered on an accelerated (8-week) schedule. Courses in the online certificate program are largely asynchronous with some optional synchronous sessions to be scheduled by the instructors.
