Major in Neuroscience

Majors must take 12 credits in electives which include: two from biology and two from psychology. Courses appropriate for biology majors would count for a biology elective and courses appropriate for a psychology major would count for a psychology elective. In addition, majors must take either 3 credits of NEUR 493 - Undergraduate Research in Neuroscience or NEUR 490 - Neuroscience: Literature and Society I and NEUR 491 - Neuroscience: Literature and Society II.  With permission of the director, NEUR 384 may be used to fulfill one psychology or biology elective requirement.

Cognate in Neuroscience

Students should consider their projected graduate program when choosing cognate electives from the areas of chemistry, mathematics, physics, computer science, and data sciences. Students may take 6 of the 18 cognate elective credits from biology or psychology areas.
