Neurobiology

Bachelor of Science in Neuroscience

The major in Neurobiology consists of six courses in neuroscience that will train students in foundational concepts in neuroscience in addition to basic laboratory skills. Further coursework will prepare students in scientific inquiry, writing and communication. As part of their requirements, students will be research experience in a laboratory examining research questions within neuroscience. Students may also specialize within the major through five electives developed specifically for the major.

The Neurobiology major is designed to introduce students to a range of concepts in neuroscience while providing them with a foundation in math and science that allows them to better understand the inner workings of the nervous system.

For centuries, the mysteries of the human brain and nervous system have challenged scientists.  As a neurobiologist, you are on the cutting-edge of this discipline that has seen significant breakthroughs for this complex organ.  In the lab, you will focus on a molecular to systems connection that will lead to a greater understanding of diseases, as well as human behavior.
