Course Requirements for the Interdisciplinary Minor in Neuroscience
A minor in neuroscience requires the successful completion of at least six courses (a minimum of 18 credit hours). At least three courses must be at the 300-level or higher, and no more than two courses can apply from study abroad to transfer credits.
Depending on a student's interest, those wishing to minor in neuroscience may choose from one of two unique tracks: the Humanities and Social Sciences (HS) track, which represents cognitive and behavioral approaches to neuroscience, or the Natural Sciences
and Engineering (SE) track, which represents genetics, cellular/molecular, bioengineering, computation, and systems-level investigations.
Core Course (regardless of track):
Core Elective (dependent on chosen track):
- NEUR/PSYC/BIOC 380: Fundamental Neuroscience Systems
- NEUR/PSYC 362: Cognitive Neuroscience (formally Biopsychology) (HS track)
- NEUR/BIOC 385: Cellular & Molecular Neuroscience (SE track)
- Students must select four electives (of at least three credits each), and should be chosen in accordance with the track selected by the student for the core.
- One of the four electives must be chosen from the alternative track, to provide breadth of the field.
- No more than two of these electives can be used to fulfill a student's major requirements.
