The concentration in Neuroscience consists of 39 hours of course work that includes 8 hours of organic chemistry and 31 hours of Neuroscience and related courses.
Majors are required to take the introductory neuroscience course PSY/NSC 201, two courses in Molecular and Cellular Neuroscience, two courses in Systems and Integrative/Cognitive Neuroscience, Neuroscience Laboratory Courses (4 hours), and Electives (12 hours). Electives include Neuroscience courses (6 hours) as well as courses that are related to specific disciplines in neuroscience (6 hours). A maximum of 2 hours of research credit (NSC 292) may be used to satisfy elective course requirements.
