Biological Sciences


Explore the intersection of the brain and the mind and its role in driving behavior and cognitive abilities with a bachelor’s in neuroscience.

Earn a Bachelor of Science in Neuroscience.

Delve into the depths of how neural systems regulate and express behavior, offering insights into the brain's complex functions.

Neuroscience explores the intersection of the brain and the mind and its role in driving behavior and cognitive abilities. This field integrates various disciplines to understand how different neural networks interact, leading to the wide range of behaviors and cognitive processes seen in humans and other species.

Our program allows students to explore in both the classroom and the laboratory using cutting-edge research such as electroencephalography and functional near-infrared spectroscopy in humans as well as genetic and pharmaceutical manipulation in animals. Graduates from our program use their broad training in neuroscience and hands-on research experience to pursue their PhD, attend medical school/dental school, or join a research team focused on unraveling the mysteries of behavior, mental illness, and neurodegenerative disease.
