Expect Challenge. Achieve Distinction.

This interdisciplinary minor in neuroscience is designed to add depth and breadth to undergraduates majoring in other disciplines 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 minor gives undergraduates the opportunity to explore this emerging field and prepare them for careers in a variety of arenas, including academia, research, medicine, biotechnology, industry and consulting. Neuroscience minors gain a broad knowledge of current scientific literature and learn how to synthesize and communicate primary research, essential skills necessary for graduate school, medical school and beyond.
