Neuroscience is one of the fastest growing areas in basic biology research.

Both the B.S. and the B.A. in biology with emphasis in neuroscience provides students with all the preparation necessary for graduate school in neuroscience or medical school and the medical school entrance exam – the MCAT.

Biology majors pursuing the area of emphasis in neuroscience take two introductory courses to learn about basic features of neurons and the organization of the brain, and then take a further concentration of courses in biology that are related to neuroscience.  A neuroscience emphasis is posted on the transcripts of students who complete these requirements.
