Neuroscience Minor

    Jack Peck, Professor and Coordinator

    This is one of the individual and interdisciplinary studies programs of the School of Humanities and Sciences.

    Since its birth in the 1970s, neuroscience has become a vital interdisciplinary field of training in science. Advances in cell and molecular biology, biochemistry, biophysics, and psychology have all contributed to the creation of this new field of study. Neuroscientists work in many areas of the basic and clinical sciences.

    The minor has both classroom and practicum components, which are divided into five major categories: (1) introduction: behavioral neuroscience and behavioral neuroscience laboratory; (2) specialty area: neurobiology; (3) electives: listed below; (4) practicum: listed below; and (5) capstone: seminar in neuroscience.

    To complete the minor, students take the introductory course and lab, one specialty course, one elective course (3 or 4 credit hours), one practicum (3 credit hours), and the capstone course. Students must also take one additional course from either the elective (with a minimum of 3 credit hours) or practicum (with a minimum of 3 credit hours) categories. No more than 8 credit hours from courses required by name and number for a major can be applied toward requirements for the minor. Students must have their course of study approved by a minor adviser so that it can be tailored to their major and so that courses with variable credits will not become problematic.
