Interdisciplinary Undergraduate Minor in Neuroscience

Neuroscience is the scientific study of the development, structure, and function of the brain and nervous system, its impact on behavior and cognition, and how these processes change throughout life in both healthy and diseased states. This field is largely interdisciplinary, with studies that range from understanding the genetic, molecular, and cellular events that govern how the brain and nervous system functions to uncovering the systems, computations, and connectivity of brain areas that underlie every facet of behavior and cognition. By minoring in neuroscience, students will have the opportunity to take neuroscience-related courses in different disciplines across different departments in order to gain current knowledge, skills, and experiences that will help prepare them for graduate study and/or careers in, or related to, this important and leading edge field. Important: After declaring a minor in neuroscience, students must select a neuroscience faculty adviser with whom they will review their course selections.
