Additional Courses

Students must complete at least 6 courses in addition to the 8 core courses.

At least 3 and no more than 4 of these additional courses must come from the student's area of concentration, which must be either Linguistics, Neuroscience, Psychological Sciences, or Philosophy. The remaining courses must be from outside the concentration.

Students may not use the same course to fulfill both a core course requirement and an area of specialization requirement.
