Neuroscience

The Neuroscience major is a new interdisciplinary program that draws from the natural, behavioral, and computational science fields. The program's concentrations explore fundamental concepts that underlie the function of the nervous system on a cellular and molecular level, how the nervous system produces behavior and cognition, and the role of computer science and mathematics in new technologies and therapies within the field. The degree earned is a BS. The knowledge gained from studying neuroscience can be applied to careers in these sub-fields, as well as in pursuit of professional programs in health, mental health, medicine, law, business and computer science.​​​​​​​​​
