The neuroscience program is an interdisciplinary major that combines the strengths of the biology, chemistry, and psychology departments. This major gives students a broad understanding of scientific endeavors that seek to explain the nervous system and how it generates complex perceptions and behaviors.

Students who successfully complete this program will be competitive for advanced degrees and careers in:

  • Neurobiology
  • Behavioral neuroscience
  • Biopsychology
  • Medicine & health care
  • Veterinary science
  • Clinical psychology

The program also can prepare for employment in related fields such as pharmaceuticals, biomedical research, and biotechnology.

This interdisciplinary program is jointly housed in the biology and psychology departments, with the respective department heads sharing equal responsibility for operation of the program.
