Neuroscience Co-Major

The Neuroscience Co-major, offered by the departments of Biology and Psychology, offers students the opportunity to pursue an in-depth exploration of the nervous system at multiple levels of analysis (molecular, genetic, cellular, and systems), including:

  • biology of individual nerve cells
  • organization of nerve cells into a functional nervous system
  • role of the nervous system in behavior and cognition

The co-major is multidisciplinary, including coursework in biology, psychology, chemistry and statistics. It provides a basic framework for students planning advanced work at the graduate level. This curriculum will ensure a strong foundation in neuroscience along with a methodological and statistical mastery (one year of statistics) that is often lacking in neuroscience education at the undergraduate level.

As some requirements for the co-major overlap with requirements for degrees in Microbiology, the co-major is an attractive academic option for Microbiology majors.
