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
401, and/or PSYC
490). The neuroscience major is especially
suited for students interested in careers in
medicine or research.
completion of the baccalaureate degree, students
in neuroscience are expected to:
Understand the scientific process and the
design and implementation of experiments;
evidence and differentiate between scientific
fact and unscientific arguments;
scientific information in oral and written
formats appropriate to scientific and nonscientific
the basic principles of neuroscience, behavior,
and the integration of the two fields;
and comprehend primary research literature
of the biological sciences;
prepared for post-baccalaureate studies
in psychology, biology, neuroscience, or
medical school, or for entering the private
sector in areas related to their training.

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
333 to meet the requirements of the Psychology
major cannot use the same course in meeting
the requirements of the Neuroscience minor.
NOTE: No more than two courses that are used
to satisfy Group III requirements can be used
to satisfy the minor requirements.
