Hearing & Communication Neuroscience Graduate Program

The University of Southern California Neuroscience Graduate Program (USC NGP) and the House Ear Institute (HEI) have established a unique research training program: The USC/HEI Hearing and Communication Neuroscience (HCN) Training Program.

The HCN Training Program constitutes a logical outgrowth of interactions between scientists at USC and HEI, and is unfettered by conventional departmental barriers. We are able to offer students a highly interactive and multidisciplinary training experience that includes basic and translational research. The opportunities created by this collaborative endeavor actively foster creative research in both basic experimental neuroscience and its application to disorders of hearing and vocal communication.

Application to the HCN training program is through the Neuroscience Graduate Program at USC. Please visit
