Bachelor of Science in Neuroscience

Neuroscience is an interdisciplinary science dedicated to discovering how the brain produces thought, emotion, and behavior on the levels of systems, cells, and molecules.

The goal of the neuroscience major is to provide students with a strong background in fundamental basic sciences and exposure to the integrative nature of neuroscience to allow students to understand nervous system function from a variety of perspectives.

Students will emerge with a strong foundation in basic science and applied neuroscience that will make them competitive for post-graduate studies or employment in industry, government, health, and education. The bachelor of science degree in neuroscience is offered jointly through the Departments of Biological Sciences and Psychology.
