Minor in Neuroscience

(Effective Spring 2017)

The Minor in Neuroscience is a collaborative, interdisciplinary program that addresses the basics of neuroscience with emphasis on biology and psychology.  With a significant rise in the number of graduate schools offering neuroscience programs, this minor will provide students with a strong and broad background.  This will also offer the opportunity for students to pursue advanced degrees in areas relating to neurosicence (e.g. - Neurobiology, Neuropsychology, Neuropharmacology, Drug Rehabilitation, Neurophysiology, Psychiatry) or in professional schools.  This minor will be jointly offered by the School of Natural Science and Mathematics (NSM) and School of Humanities and Social Sciences (HSS) in order to meet this student demand.
