What You'll Learn
The neuroscience curriculum centers on integration of the student's understanding of the nervous system at the cellular/molecular level (e.g., synaptic function, membrane potentials) with the organismal level (e.g., processing in cortical areas of the brain, behavior).
A Degree That Works
The major in neuroscience provides opportunities in many areas, including pre-professional preparation (preparing for medical school, dental school, veterinary school, or other allied health training), pre-graduate preparation (preparing for further training as a neuroscientist or scientist in a related field), or direct entry into the research field, either academic or private.
