Beginning in Fall 2022, we will be offering a B.S. in Neuroscience!
The B.S. in Neuroscience was developed to bring together the multiple scientific disciplines
across campus that focus on the nervous system. This interdisciplinary program offers
students the ability to get a strong background in basic science alongside specialization
within a specifc concentration area and extensive opportunites for hands-on research
experience. In particular, the B.S. in Neuroscience was designed to provide the necessary
background for entry into graduate programs in Neuroscience as well as facilitate
completion of Pre-Med requirements for entry into Medical School.
All majors must pick 1 of 3 concentration areas:
Cellular and Molecular Neuroscience (CMN)
Cognitive and Behavioral Neuroscience (CBN)
Neurodevelopment and Neurodevelopmental Disorders (NND)
Additionally, majors can apply to the B.S. with Distinction in Neuroscience to complete
additional research culminating in a senior thesis (NSCI 499). SCHC students can use
their honors thesis (SCHC 499) to fulfil this thesis requirement as well.
A minor or cognate is NOT required for this degree. Students may choose to optionally complete a minor, cognate,
or second major.
Students considering switching to the B.S. in Neuroscience can use the following worksheets
to evaluate how their existing coursework fits into the program and plan their coursework
for upcoming semesters.
