Neuroscience Program

The Neuroscience Program offers both a Major and a Minor that provide a strong background in the multiple scientific disciplines used to study the nervous system. There is a strong focus on both coursework and research experience that will encourage critical thinking and problem solving using the methods of scientific inquiry, promote understanding of the theories and methods of modern neuroscience, and prepare students for entry into a variety of postbaccalaureate graduate and professional programs.

Neuroscience at USC

The University of South Carolina has a wide variety of classroom and research experiences available for students interested in the structure and function of the nervous system. Faculty from across campus are available to mentor undergraduates, providing a truly interdisciplinary experience for our Majors and Minors. 

Our programs provide the opportunity to develop a strong background in the workings of the nervous system, from the cellular and molecular level to the social and behavioral level. These programs are ideal for students who intend to pursue graduate studies in neuroscience, animal behavior, psychology or medicine and for students simply interested in gaining a better understanding of their own interactions with the world.
