Neuroscience Interdisciplinary Major (B.S.)

Neuroscience is the study of the structure and function of the central and peripheral nervous systems, with a special focus on the brain. The bachelor of science degree in neuroscience provides a broad foundation in understanding neural function from the perspective of molecules, cells, circuits, systems, and emergent behaviors. The program is designed to provide a challenging sequence of courses in biology, psychology, chemistry, mathematics, physics, and computer science, in addition to introductory and advanced courses in neuroscience. Students will integrate content, skills, and critical thinking to design a feasible independent neuroscience-focused research project in collaboration with faculty.
