Neuroscience is a multidisciplinary field of study devoted to understanding the relationship between brain and behavior. Drawing prominently from biology and psychology, the central tenet of Neuroscience is that all behavior can be understood in terms of its underlying molecular, cellular and neural systems.
Students will learn foundational laboratory skills and core concepts through coursework across many disciplines. Students will develop oral and written scientific communication skills as well as the ability to critically evaluate scientific research.
