The University of Delaware has a great program! I found the faculty and staff to be very helpful and willing to help. If you are looking to earn your masters in Neurosciecne they have a great four plus one program that will allow you to earn your masters in five years!

Wonderful Experience 8/16/2019

I cannot say enough about how great UD is. I had a couple of professors who became my mentors that I still keep in touch with, 10 years after graduating. I also was able to get a job 2 months after graduating with my Bachelors degree, during the recession in 2009. I still work at the same place, and ha e advanced in my career, thanks to my background at UD. Im so thankful I went there, and highly recommend.
