About

The Neuroscience program provides courses for Neuroscience majors across four concentrations:  cellular/molecular, behavioral/cognitive, computational neuroscience and general. The program is an interdisciplinary major that involves various topics such as biology, psychology, philosophy, mathematics, and computer science.

By achieving a Bachelor of Science in Neuroscience, students are prepared to pursue a variety of career paths that include options such as:
  • Graduate training programs in the health field that focus on neuroimaging and neurophysiology, such as administering electroencephalograms or magnetic resonance imaging.
  • Professional health careers dealing with Neuroscience including Psychiatry, Neurology, Neuropathology, Neuro-physics, and Neurosurgery.
  • Students interested in Psychology can pursue careers in counseling, clinical psychology, or neuropsychology.
  • Students in Computational Neuroscience can go on to graduate programs in computer science, imaging, artificial intelligence, and “big data.”
  • Another option is to move on to graduate programs in marketing and economics, such as Neuro-marketing,Neuro-economics, or in law and ethics.
  • Upon completion of a BS in Neuroscience, without pursuit of graduate studies, students are qualified for numerous positions as biomedical, pharmaceutical, and psychology researchers, forensics technicians, science writers, data analysis, or non-for-profit agencies dealing with disease and disorder of the brain.
