Minor in Neuroscience

About the Program

The Neuroscience minor allows students from a vast array of disciplines the opportunity for formalized study in Neuroscience. This interdisciplinary minor integrates content from cellular, molecular, and systems neurobiology with neuropsychology, providing students with a strong foundation in basic principles of neurobiology and neuropsychology. This minor is a collaborative effort between Biology and Psychology, but is open to students in any major with an interest gaining a deeper understanding of the biological and cognitive principles underlying brain function.
