Psychobiology

About This Program

You’re fascinated by the brain—why people and animals think and behave how they do. You’re not satisfied by basic explanations and always want to know more. To you, learning should be a hands-on experience. Psychobiology may be the major for you.

Taught by expert faculty, the program provides advanced instruction and hands-on learning opportunities that enable students to gain deep insights into the integration of biology and behavior.
