The Bachelor of Science major in neuroscience requires 17 courses (12 basic courses, plus five required 300-level courses). The students choose these five courses from a specified list of advanced neuroscience courses. One of the five can be chosen from a list of related courses as described below.
Five advanced neuroscience electives must be chosen from the courses listed below with a minimum of two from Category I and two from Category II. One credit of Independent Research*, or one course from the neuroscience-related electives in the next section can also be counted as one of the five.
BIOL 322 Physiological Mechanisms
BIOL 324 Neurophysiology
BIOL/NEUR 332 Developmental Neurobiology
BIOL 342 Neuroethology

*Only 1 credit of NEUR independent research (NEUR 399) may be counted toward one of the five required NEUR electives listed above. This is counted as lab credit course. Neuroscience-related research credit may be earned in ANBE, BIOL, CHEM, NEUR, or PSYC. See the Neuroscience Program Director for permission.
Students need not choose any specific course of study or concentration within neuroscience. However, students with interests in particular aspects of the neuroscience major may consider choosing among courses that reflect these interests, such as cognitive and behavioral neuroscience or cellular and molecular neuroscience. Students interested in pursuing such interests should consult with their adviser on how best to accomplish their goals.
