Neuroscience

Professor: Sheers, Wilson

Associate Professors: Bayline (director), Leonard, Matsuno

The neuroscience program is an interdisciplinary program with faculty members from biology, chemistry, psychology, and physics. The program provides two courses of study. The neuroscience emphasis is provided for students who major in biology or psychology. Students majoring in other disciplines may complete a neuroscience minor. These courses of study are designed for students interested in graduate study or employment in any of the disciplines associated with neuroscience, including neurology, molecular neuroscience, psychiatry, and biopsychology.

EMPHASIS REQUIREMENTS: Along with the requirements in each student's biology or psychology major, the student must complete three core courses in neuroscience (NSC 210 , 300 , and 400 ). Additionally, each student must complete a neuroscience-related research project that may be fulfilled by either an on-campus tutorial or independent study project, or a summer or Intersession internship.

MINOR REQUIREMENTS: Students in all majors other than biology or psychology must complete the equivalent of six courses for the minor. These courses include two introductory science courses from two different disciplines (BIO 101 or 102 , CHM 160 , PHY 101 or 107 , or PSY 101), the three core neuroscience courses (NSC 210 , 300 , and 400), and a neuroscience-related research project that may be fulfilled by either an on-campus tutorial or independent study project, or a summer or Intersession internship.
