The minor in neuroscience is designed for students who have an interest in learning more about how biological, physiological, psychological, and behavioral processes intersect to impact disease and its treatment in human and non-human animal species. Neuroscience also focuses on “normal” processes, including sleep, language acquisition, learning, and memory.
A minor in neuroscience augments the education students would receive in biology, psychology, rehabilitation sciences, communicative disorders and sciences, and pre-professional (pre-medicine, pre-pharmacy, etc.).
Candidates for the bachelor of arts or the bachelor of science in psychology must earn a grade of C or better in all courses required in the program, including courses used to complete Area F in the core, and Related Field Courses. All minors also require a C or better in all courses required for the minor.
