Undergraduate Program in Neuroscience

The Undergraduate Program in Neuroscience offers a major focused on the interdisciplinary study of mind, brain, and behavior. The major combines a broad foundation in the natural sciences and core courses spanning the breadth of neuroscience with the opportunity for in-depth study in one of three areas: neurobiology (with emphasis on cell, molecular, and systems neuroscience), cognitive neuroscience, or computational neuroscience. Students have access to the extensive resources and expertise of faculty in multiple departments and colleges across the University. A wide array of courses is offered through the departments of Biology, Chemistry, Computer Science, Health Sciences, Mathematics & Statistics, Physics, and Psychological & Brain Sciences. Opportunities for faculty-mentored 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.
