Neuroscience is concerned with understanding the structure and functioning of the nervous system and its relation to behavior. The field spans all levels of biological analysis with interfaces to many fields such as mathematics, law and engineering.
The BS degree program in neuroscience consists of rigorous, in-depth training in cellular, molecular, and systems biology. With this broad depth of fundamental knowledge, students will move into different areas of specialization in neuroscience. Students will be prepared for highly collaborative and interdisciplinary research and teaching positions in neuroscience. The training will also enable students to enter biomedical fields that prepare students for careers medicine, nursing or veterinary medicine and to integrate developing outcomes from the research community into their practice.
