Advising FAQ

Is there a GPA requirement to graduate with a Neuroscience Minor?

Yes.  In accordance with College policy, you must have a GPA of at least 2.000 in the courses that comprise the minor.

Can I have more than one minor?

Yes, although the College will only allow you to earn two different minors.  The only stipulation is that no courses you take can count in more than one of the minors.

Do I have to do an independent study for the neuroscience minor?

An independent study is not required for completion of the neuroscience minor.  However, if you are interested in conducting a Bachelor's Essay to complete the research requirement, you might want to consider doing an independent study in the spring semester of your junior year to try out a lab before committing to a year-long project in your senior year. For more information and advice about the research requirement, look at our Bachelor's Essay guidelines.

Do I have to take BIOL/PSYC351 before BIOL/PSYC352?

No. If you have already taken PSYC 214 then you may enroll in BIOL/PSYC352 first.
