The Neuroscience Concentration allows students to study the biological basis of behavior and organizational principles of brain functioning in depth. Students are encouraged to take courses in both Psychology and Biology because of the field's interdisciplinary nature; however, students can meet concentration requirements from classes offered by the Department of Psychology alone. This concentration is well suited for students planning to go on to clinical neuropsychology, medicine, pharmacology, neuroscience, or allied health fields.
Four courses (at least 12 credit hours) are required from the list below. One of the four courses must have a service learning component or a laboratory component.
Only one elective class can be transferred from another institution. All courses must be passed with a grade of C- or higher. A minimum cumulative GPA of 2.0 is required for all courses in the concentration.
