To assist students with their academic choices abroad and to help answer any questions about receiving major/minor credit while abroad, each academic department and program has assigned a faculty member to serve as the study abroad liaison. Neuroscience majors who plan to study abroad should speak with the study abroad liaison before they go abroad, and again once they have returned from study abroad.
The liaison for Neuroscience is Professor Paul Miller.
Students wishing to receive Neuroscience credit for work done off campus during the academic year should discuss their desired coursework with their study abroad liaison for Neuroscience. After returning from abroad, complete the electronic Petition to Request Substitution for a Requirement form.
Brandeis Scholarships for Study Abroad are available for students receiving need-based financial aid. Application materials are available online and in our office.
