Neuroscience, B.S.

Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Majors

Neuroscience is a major program whose curriculum is composed of biology and psychology courses and additional courses in chemistry, physics, mathematics, philosophy and computer science depending upon a student’s particular interest. It is designed to provide the necessary scientific background for students interested in the biological basis of behavior and the relationship of neural and psychological processes. In addition to the core requirements, a flexible program of additional courses is planned during advisement centering around a student’s particular ambitions.


Neuroscience majors who are in the All-College Honors Program must have at least a 3.5 average in three or more courses in the neuroscience curriculum to enter honors research. There are also opportunities for a more extensive capstone project through our Research Scholars Program.
