The Neuroscience major and minor are rigorous interdisciplinary programs, administered jointly by an advisory committee with representation from the departments of Biology, Chemistry, Physics, and Psychology.
It is designed to provide a foundation in neuroscience and to allow students to focus their research interests in a variety of levels of nervous system functioning, from the activity of single neurons to the complexity of behavioral systems. Majors distribute their coursework across the fields of biology, chemistry, philosophy, physics, and psychology as these disciplines all contribute to the interdisciplinary nature of the brain sciences.
The Neuroscience major requires 14 courses and the minor requires six. Internship and independent study opportunities are available.
