Neuroscience is the study of the nervous system, incorporating the perspectives of several fields of study. Students will explore the relationship between the brain, the rest of the body, and the environment with respect to affect, behavior, and cognition. The disciplines of biology, psychology, and philosophy are particularly pertinent to this interdisciplinary minor. This interdisciplinary minor is well suited to biological sciences, health and society, and psychology majors, pre-health professions students or those interested in a career in neuroscience.
No more than two courses can be double-counted towards this minor and another minor or major.
In order to apply for the minor in neuroscience, a student must have:
- Earned at least a C- in BIOL 1301 /BIOL 1101 (or AP/transfer course equivalents)
- Earned at least a C- in PSYC 1300 and PSYC 3301 (or AP/transfer course equivalents)
