Dual Phd with Psychology & Brain Sciences
Example timetable for dual major with Psychology & Brain Sciences is shown below. The example assumes that the major area within PBS is ‘Cognitive Neuroscience’ and shows just one example for how the 12-credit area requirement can be met (N500, N501, P650, P657) – other combinations of classes are possible. In addition, PBS requires a course on advanced statistics (usually P553) and research methods. First- and second-year research projects must be submitted by the end of the third and fifth semesters, respectively. P660 is required as part of the teaching and instructional skills requirement. Variations of the Summer Research Internship (SRI) and second year projects with research rotations and other program-specific constraints are possible.
*I501 and I502 must occur in semesters where they appear, all other courses can be taken in years 1-3.
#Dual PhD students with Cognitive Science of Psychology and Brain Sciences are not required to take either I601 or I606, if a similar course is completed in the dual degree, such as Q610/P657 "Networks of the Brain" or COGS-Q580 "An Introduction to Dynamical Systems in Cognitive Science".
Orange line represents time when all students must complete course requirements for admission to candidacy, which can happen any time in year 3. Mentorship of under-represented minority undergraduate students, under the Summer Research Opportunities in Computing (IU-SROC) program, occurs in the last two years. The dissertation proposal is expected to occur by the end of year 4 (red line). Dissertation defense is expected to occur during year 5.
