2017-2018 Undergraduate Catalog

Neuroscience


If you score a 4 or 5 on the Biology AP test, you can apply those credits toward your graduation requirements, but students majoring in neuroscience are required to take both Introduction to Ecology and Evolution (BI 151) and Introductory Cell Biology and Genetics (BI 153).  The project-driven nature of these courses is very important in preparing students for the upper-level biology classes.

If you score a 4 or 5 on the Psychology AP test, you can apply those credits toward your graduation requirements as well as the General Psychology (PS 101) requirement within the Neuroscience major.

Students who major in Neuroscience may not double-major or minor in either Biology or Psychology, or double-major in Biochemistry due to the overlapping nature of the course requirements.

And take the following two science cognate courses:


Note:


Students planning post-baccalaureate programs or graduate school should discuss other cognate course options with their advisor or the Program Director.
