Students pursuing a minor in Neuroscience must complete:
A minimum of 6 courses totaling at least 18 credit hours in order to satisfy minor requirements.
A minimum of 3 courses totaling at least 9 credit hours of the total minor requirements must be at the 300-level or above.
No more than 2 courses (6 credit hours) can be applied from study abroad or transfer credits. For additional program guidelines regarding transfer credit, see the Policies section.
At least 2 of the electives should be completed for the minor only (not shared or double-counted with the selected major).
The requirements for one area of specialization. See list below. The areas of specialization for the minor in Neuroscience are:
Humanities and Social Science: represents cognitive and behavioral approaches to neuroscience.
Natural Sciences and Engineering: represents genetics, cellular/molecular, neuroengineering, computation, and systems-level investigations.
The courses listed below satisfy the core and specialization requirements for this minor. In certain instances, courses not on this official list may be substituted upon approval of the minor's academic advisor (or the official certifier). Students and their academic advisors should identify and clearly document the courses to be taken.
