Bachelor of Science in Neuroscience
Required Neuroscience Fundamentals Courses (Core):
Students must take one of the following sequences of natural sciences courses with labs (or their equivalents at higher levels) for a minimum of 10 credit hours in chemistry or physics:
|CHEM 1140||Fundamentals of College Chemistry||
|CHEM 1144||Fundamentals of College Chemistry Laboratory||
|CHEM 2210||Fundamentals of Organic Chemistry||
|CHEM 2214||Fundamentals of Organic Chemistry Laboratory||
Although not required, Calculus (especially MATH 1940: Calculus for Biomedicine) is strongly recommended, and may be a prerequisite for advanced courses in neuroscience.
Supporting Neuroscience Elective Courses
In addition to the required core courses, 12 credit hours as a combination from the Block I and Block II lists below must be selected. At least 3 credits must come from Block I and at least 3 credits must come from Block II. The remaining minimum of 6 credits can be taken from either Block I or II.
Block I Neuroscience Electives: Molecular and Cellular Neuroscience
Block II Neuroscience Electives: Integrative Behavioral Neuroscience
** NEUR 4900 with a Integrative/Behavioral topic
Advanced Neuroscience Lecture and Lab Course
Students must take one lecture course (that has not already been used to satisfy the Supporting Neuroscience Elective Courses requirement) and one laboratory course.
|NEUR 4200||Advanced Neuroscience Laboratory||
Advanced Writing Course
All students are required to take an advanced writing course within their major. For the Neuroscience major this is fulfilled with the combination of PSYC 3140 and an Advanced Laboratory course.
