Bachelor of Science Degree in Neuroscience

The Bachelor of Science (B.S.) in Neuroscience is an interdisciplinary degree that will provide students the opportunity to pursue an integrated course of study in Neuroscience – a unique academic field that requires students to understand and utilize a set of diverse knowledge from multiple disciplines. Neuroscience impacts all areas of science and business and this degree is intended to prepare students for a wide range of careers in this area.

The curriculum is structured around 1) an interdisciplinary foundation in the sciences, psychology, and data analysis; 2) a broad scope of electives for students to individualize their degree or pursue one of three neuroscience concentrations (Behavioral, Molecular, and Pre-medical); and 3) opportunities for research/practical experience.
