New Interdisciplinary Minor in Neuroscience
he College of Liberal Arts now offers a new interdisciplinary minor in Neuroscience.
The minor in Neuroscience is an interdisciplinary course of study that will provide students an understanding of the neural underpinnings of behavior. Students will be encouraged to take basic and advanced courses in pure and applied neuroscience from several departments. Students from many different majors will find the scope of courses addressing brain and behavior enlightening and practical for their future careers. They will come to understand that neuroscience spans levels from the molecular to the psychological in both humans and other animals and learn how to apply theory to experimental or observational studies. Students will discover that there is no true dichotomy between the brain and the mind.
The minor requires 19-22 hours, including PSY 319, BISC 327, and four advanced courses from an approved list of courses, of which at least one course must be a formal laboratory course or director approved independent laboratory course (3 credit hours minimum) and at least one course must be at the 500-level.
