Neuroscience: Bachelor of Science
You can choose to either specialize in cellular and molecular neuroscience or cognitive neuroscience. Both specializations provide a solid foundation in the biology, chemistry and psychology underlying modern neuroscience. The specialization in cellular and molecular neuroscience provides an in-depth study of the basic biological processes of the cells and circuits that make up the nervous system. The cognitive neuroscience specialization examines the behavioral antecedents of brain and nervous system functioning.
**Neuroscience majors automatically receive a minor in interdisciplinary studies.**
