Have you always wanted to earn that degree in neuroscience, but never had the time? The University of Pennsylvania has just the thing: their 2012 Neuroscience Boot Camp. No, you won’t actually get a degree. The program lasts just nine days. But, you will get a crash course in cognitive and affective neuroscience, and you’ll be a lot more brain-savvy after the intense classwork. As Penn puts it, attendees will become “informed consumers of neuroscience research.”
Here are the basics:
The academic program spans eight days, Monday-Wednesday, with half of Saturday and all of Sunday off. We begin with a welcome reception on Monday evening, July 30th and end with a gala dinner party on the evening of August 8th.
The cost of Boot Camp is $4,500, which includes tuition, on-campus housing with breakfast, lunch and three evening receptions. For those who do not need housing the fee is $4,200. Limited scholarship aid is available.
Complete applications are due by midnight on February 3rd. You will be notified of the status of your application by March 5th, and will have until April 6th to confirm attendance.
