The neuroscience minor is structured on the existing disciplinary course infrastructures. The minor consists of a total of 23 credit hours, combining three core neuroscience courses listed below with flagged courses from multiple disciplines, thus allowing students to tailor their own specialized program to match their interests.
In addition to the core courses, students are required to take 12 credits of flagged courses, only 8 of which may be taken in the student’s major department and satisfy the requirements for the student’s major. These courses include:
Students with majors outside of psychology are strongly encouraged to take PSY 100 - Introduction to Psychology to fulfill their Social Science I General Education Requirement. This class will prepare them for the upper-level flagged courses offered through the psychology department.
Students with 1) majors outside of biology and 2) who are interested in taking a flagged course in biology are strongly encouraged to take BIOL 221 - Human Physiology as their flagged course in neuroscience
Students can receive credit for taking BIOL 221 or BIOL 442, but not for both classes.
