Minor in Neuroscience

The neuroscience minor is designed for students majoring in all subjects other than neuroscience. The minor program aims to provide students a working knowledge of the functional and biological bases of brains and nervous systems.  The neuroscience minor integrates knowledge from biology, psychology, and other related disciplines to provide undergraduate students the opportunity to obtain fundamental knowledge and exposure to neuroscientific concepts. It is especially valuable for students considering post-baccalaureate study or careers in health and disease, rehabilitation, biomedical research, user experience design, artificial intelligence, human-machine interaction, and other emerging disciplines.
