Meet the Faculty


The neuroscience minor combines courses in biology, psychology, and philosophy for an integrated study of how the brain functions and the biological contributions to behavior. The program is interdisciplinary with a variety of topical and methodological perspectives. Students aspiring to graduate studies in neuroscience may combine the minor with a major in biology, biochemistry and molecular biology, marine biology, or psychology.

Eligibility Requirements

Because prerequisites will be waived for admission to upper-level Psychology and Biology courses, students must apply to register as a Neuroscience Minor. Eligibility requirements include:

  • Sophomore standing
  • Declared Psychology, Biology, Biochemistry/Molecular Biology, or Marine Biology major
  • Minimum of two courses in major sequence completed
  • Major GPA of 3.0

Majors from another discipline may petition the Program Director for admission to the minor with additional requirements including:

  • Statement of interest
  • Statement of support from a faculty instructor
