Students pursuing the Bachelor of Arts (B.A.) Program with a major in Neuroscience must complete:
• A minimum of 62-66 credit hours to satisfy major requirements, dependent on course selection.
• A minimum of 122-126 credit hours to satisfy degree requirements, dependent on course selection.
• A minimum of 60 credit hours outside of major requirements.
The courses listed below satisfy the requirements for this major. In certain instances, courses not on this official list may be substituted upon approval of the major’s academic advisor (or official certifier). Students and their academic advisors should identify and clearly document the courses to be taken.
