B.A. / B.S. IN NEUROSCIENCE
Neuroscience is an interdisciplinary field that involves studying the structure of the nervous system and how it relates to functions like thinking and behavior. For example, neuroscientists can work to determine the brain's connectivity, how drugs affect the nervous system, and how neurodegenerative diseases affect the brain and behavior.
A Bachelor of Science or a Bachelor of Arts in neuroscience includes courses in psychology, biology, chemistry, computer science, and other disciplines. Students can also expect to learn how to think critically about scientific information, discuss and write about neuroscience topics, and design and conduct experiments. A major in neuroscience can prepare students for work in the life sciences, including the health science professions, as well as for positions as laboratory or medical technicians, science writers, medical and health services managers, or sales and marketing professionals.
The B.A. and B.S. degrees in Neuroscience serve students who have vocational aspirations in the pre-health professions (medicine, etc.) as well as students who may wish to pursue graduate study in neuroscience.
