The bachelor of science major in neuroscience is a prototypical interdisciplinary program consisting principally of biology and psychology courses. Courses that contribute to meeting the requirements of this major are all listed in biology and psychology departmental listings. In addition to structured coursework, majors are strongly urged to take independent research courses with neuroscience faculty (NEUR 470, BIOL 401, and/or PSYC 490). The neuroscience major is especially suited for students interested in careers in medicine or research.
Upon completion of the baccalaureate degree, students in neuroscience are expected to:
*Any combination of the following courses (17 hours)
*Most of these courses have prerequisite(s) associated with them (consent of instructor is often sufficient). See course descriptions for necessary prerequisites. The number of additional credit hours a student might need could range from 0 to 22.
**Must have approval of neuroscience program to count toward minor.
IMPORTANT NOTE: Courses that are used to satisfy requirements for a major or another minor cannot also be used to satisfy the requirements of the Neuroscience minor. For example, a psychology major who is using PSYC 333 to meet the requirements of the Psychology major cannot use the same course in meeting the requirements of the Neuroscience minor.
IMPORTANT NOTE: No more than two courses that are used to satisfy Group III requirements can be used to satisfy the minor requirements.
