Rice University's partnership with our colleagues in the Texas Medical Center forms the largest concentration of neuroscience researchers, engineers, and educators in the world. We are in a unique position to lead in creating new scientific and engineering breakthroughs through research, as well as provide a world-class educational mission for training tomorrow's neuroscience scholars, scientists and engineers. Rice is rapidly building one of the best computational, developmental, systems, and engineering neuroscience programs in the country.
Rice is currently developing a B.A. Degree Program with a major in Neuroscience. The program will produce graduates with a broad background in the multidisciplinary field of neuroscience. Disciplines emphasized in the program range from integrative neuroscience to neuroengineering. The program will provide opportunities for experiential learning, as well as an emphasis on advanced quantitative and computational skill. Our minor in Neuroscience provides a strong education and complements a wide variety of majors.
