Members of the Departments of Biology and Psychology

The Departments of Psychology and Biology offer a Bachelor of Science degree in Neuroscience.

Neuroscience is an interdepartmental major that provides an integrated and in-depth foundation for understanding the complex functions of the brain. Recent advances in physiology, cell and molecular biology, biochemistry and imaging technology have greatly increased our understanding of brain function. Over the past decade, there has been increased interest in the relationship between behavior and the functioning of the nervous and endocrine systems along with a renewed interest in the effects of the environment on brain function and plasticity. Given this combination of events, now is an exciting time to become involved in neuroscience.

Mission

The mission of the Neuroscience Program is to prepare students to actively engage in and contribute to the process, understanding and application of neuroscience. Neuroscience is an interdepartmental major that provides an integrated and in-depth foundation for understanding the complex functions of the nervous system and in particular, the brain. The Neuroscience major is appropriate for students interested in medical school, graduate school and careers in research or in allied health fields.
