What is a BA in Neuroscience? A Bachelor of Arts in Neuroscience undertakes the study of the brain and nervous system, combining research into molecules, cells, genetics, brain structure and brain systems, with investigations of how these elements combine to influence cognition and behavior. Participants may study biology, neurology, chemistry and psychology. Classes can include lectures as well as hands-on laboratory work in which students will learn to use state-of-the-art equipment and contemporary research methods. Students may even have the opportunity to collaborate with professionals and publish original research.

Students gain many important skills in a neuroscience program. They can learn to look at the world analytically and logically, and to use scientific methodology in investigating and solving problems. They may develop effective oral and written communication skills and the ability to evaluate scientific literature for validity and efficacy.

Many institutions around the world offer the opportunity to study neuroscience. The cost of these programs will vary, and prospective students should choose one that aligns well with their needs, goals and financial situation.

Graduates in neuroscience may find work in a number of fields, including health related professions such as medicine, dentistry, public health and veterinary medicine. They may also seek careers in educational or research facilities or in the mental health arena. Students who wish to continue their education and work toward a master’s degree or PhD can find even greater career opportunities and earning potential.

Neuroscience is a rapidly expanding field with potential applications to many industries. Students with an interest in psychology or medicine may be drawn to this field.
