Penn’s new certificate program in Social, Cognitive and Affective Neuroscience (SCAN) will enable graduate and professional students preparing for a wide range of careers to work knowledgeably with neuroscience. Rather than training future neuroscientists, the program’s aim is to supplement the education of people with expertise in other areas, enabling them to incorporate some of the concepts and methods of neuroscience into their work. The curriculum will focus on the aspects of neuroscience that have the most direct application to the understanding of human behavior, specifically cognitive and affective neuroscience.
