The Neuroscience Concentration within the Psychology Major allows students to engage in coursework and research that will provide them with a strong understanding of the biological bases of behavior and mental function. This concentration is open only to Psychology B.A. majors of the class of 2013 and prior. Students of the class of 2014 and on are advised to consider the Psychology B.S. major.
Courses are selected from the Psychology, Biology, and Chemistry Departments that are related to the following: evolution and genetics of behavior; neural, neurochemical, and physiological control of behavior; the biology of behavioral development; and molecular neurobiology of behavior.
The concentration is meant for students who plan to enter a graduate program in the neurosciences but will also be valuable to pre-medical students or those interested in the health-related professions.
