Do neuroscience, not just think about it.
Neuroscience is a rapidly evolving and truly interdisciplinary field. The neuroscience minor is designed to reflect this, and leverages the expertise of faculty members from seven distinct academic departments across the sciences and humanities. The minor is accessible to individuals from all majors, and our students are required to take coursework that trains them to consider scientific problems from the perspective of disciplines outside their major. Neuroscience students are often deeply involved with faculty research that spans many subfields, including neurobiology, cognitive neuroscience, behavioral neuroscience, neurochemistry, and behavioral genetics. In short, we want you to do neuroscience, not just think about it. We believe this active, interdisciplinary approach is the best preparation for your professional life outside Lewis & Clark.
