Neuroscience

Degree Requirements: Bachelor of Science with a major in Neuroscience

The Neuroscience major consists of a group of core, required courses, while also providing students with the choice to pursue a biomedical track (courses marked with a "*") or a biobehavioral track (courses marked with a "+") according to their career interests.  Students also have the ability to select courses for a more applied (clinical) or research focus.
