Undergraduate Program in Neuroscience

The undergraduate program in Neuroscience offers a major focused on the interdisciplinary study of mind, brain, and behavior. The field draws heavily from its disciplinary roots, and thus relies on a solid and broad scientific and theoretical foundation. The major combines breadth of exposure to the field with opportunities to study in depth one of three central domains of neuroscience: cellular & systems, cognition & behavior, and computation. Students have access to the extensive resources and expertise of faculty across multiple departments and colleges throughout the University. A wide array of courses are offered through the departments of Biology, Chemistry, Computer Science, Health Sciences, Mathematics & Statistics, Physics, and Psychological & Brain Sciences. Opportunities for independent laboratory research are available through departments in the Colleges of Arts & Sciences, Health & Rehabilitation Sciences, and Engineering, and at the Boston University School of Medicine, including the Departments of Anatomy & Neurobiology, Biochemistry, Neurology, Pathology, Pharmacology & Experimental Therapeutics, Physiology & Biophysics, Psychiatry, and Radiology.
