Neuroscience

The rapidly growing field of neuroscience aims to understand the structure and function of the human brain, spinal cord and peripheral nervous system.

This interdisciplinary major in neuroscience, housed in the Department of Biology, is designed to add depth and breadth to a student’s education by exploring the nervous system from multiple perspectives, including biology, psychology and chemistry. Biology and psychology majors can declare a concentration in neuroscience, while students from other disciplines such as chemistry, nursing, computer science and others will benefit by gaining interdisciplinary exposure to this field.

The neuroscience major will give students the opportunity to explore this emerging field and prepare them for careers in a wide variety of fields such as academia, research, medicine, biotechnology, industry and consulting. Students will obtain a broad knowledge of the current scientific literature and learn how to synthesize and communicate primary research, essential skills necessary for graduate school, medical school and beyond.
