Neuroscience Major

Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Programs by Department

Neuroscience is an interdisciplinary field that combines biology, psychology and chemistry to investigate how the nervous system generates the complex experience and behavior of humans and other animals while being shaped in turn by the organism’s engagement with the environment. Drawing most heavily on the offerings of its home departments of psychology and biology, but with additional courses in chemistry, mathematics, and computer science, the neuroscience major offers excellent preparation for post-graduate education and careers in the interdisciplinary field of neuroscience.

Major requirements

The major consists of at least 13 credits, 4 of which must be at the 300-level or above, including the Senior Seminar in Neuroscience.
