Neuroscience is an interdisciplinary field of study that allows individuals to decipher the nervous system which guides all behavior, and cognition. In this program, you will examine the function and dysfunction of the brain through the utilization of a molecules-to-behavior approach.

A bachelor of science in neuroscience will prepare and make you competitive for further study in both professional and graduate school. In addition, you will be well-equipped to enter the job market in which neuroscience has become an increasingly driving force.
