Neuroscience Interdisciplinary Minor
The neuroscience program is designed to provide students with a full-spectrum approach to understanding how the brain and nervous system work in the expression of behavior. The field of neuroscience is a hybrid that integrates psychology and biology; it also draws from other academic areas such as philosophy, computer science, and mathematics. This program fulfills the interdisciplinary nature of the field of Neuroscience by allowing students to take neuroscience-related courses from a variety of disciplines but especially courses offered by the Departments of Biology, Physics and Psychology. Students are currently required to complete a Bachelor's Essay in Neuroscience, which involves two semesters of research on a neuroscience-related topic in order to prepare them for future careers in neuroscience-related fields.
