Most of our majors have attained careers in biomedical research or in the medical/allied health professions. Others have pursued careers in industry (biotech firms and pharmaceutical companies), government (NIH), law, insurance industry, and education (professors, career counselors).

Undergraduate Program

  • This multidisciplinary major integrates courses from four different departments: Biology, Chemistry & Biochemistry, Health Sciences, and Psychology.
  • Two tracks of this major are available:
    • Track A (General) is designed to provide students with a broader and more flexible background.
    • Track B (Graduate Preparation) provides a more focused academic background with opportunities to develop skills so that you can successfully compete for neuroscience-related jobs in the private and public sectors, or admission to graduate or professional schools.

Graduate Program

  • Our graduate program in Neuroscience will provide you with the requisite academic background, technical skills, and hands-on research experience that will allow you to successfully compete for neuroscience-related jobs in the private and public sectors.
