Offered as a major (B.A.) and a minor
MAJOR: Behavioral Neuroscience | MINOR: NEUROSCIENCE
Behavioral Neuroscience is the study of behavior by understanding the functioning of the brain. As such, the major is designed for students interested in the physiology, ranging from neurons and neural networks to whole brain systems, mediating cognition and behavior. Building on a foundation in basic psychology, biology, and chemistry, coursework in behavioral neuroscience will provide students in-depth understanding of neurons and the nervous system, and their roles in cognition and behavior.
