becoming a major in neuroscience

This major builds from core courses in Biology, Chemistry and Psychology. Subsequent core courses, Introduction to Neuroscience and Neurobiology, ground the core introductory sequences in a thorough understanding of the brain and neurons. From here, students can select upper-level courses in Biology and Psychology to tailor a program of study that supports their long-range interests in the field. The major culminates in an independent research project in neuroscience.
