Welcome to the Department of Neuroscience in the College of Science and Health at DePaul University!

The Department of Neuroscience offers an interdisciplinary Bachelor of Science degree that draws from the natural, behavioral, and computational science fields. The program's concentrations consider fundamental concepts that underlie the function of the nervous system on a cellular and molecular level, how the nervous system produces behavior and cognition, and the role of computer science and mathematics in new technologies and therapies within the field. The knowledge gained from studying neuroscience can be applied to careers in these sub-fields, as well as in pursuit of professional programs in health and medicine.

"I feel as if I am a step ahead of everyone else and I am more prepared than the  students who come from other established neuro programs at large universities."
