Bachelor of Science

Explore the science of the human brain.

Are you a hardworking, highly analytical person interested in studying the human brain? If so, you may be interested in pursuing a Bachelor of Science in Neuroscience.

Neuroscience is an interdisciplinary field in which scientists share a common interest in studying anatomy, physiology, and function of the nervous system and how it regulates behavior. The major is designed to provide a strong foundation in neuroscience while giving students the flexibility to select courses that prepare them for a wide variety of career options. These include, but are not limited to, graduate study in neuroscience, physiological psychology, neuropsychology and health care areas such as physical therapy, neuro-rehabilitation and medicine. Neuroscience is also a major for students who are simply interested in understanding the nature of brain-behavior relationships and want to pursue the field as part of a liberal arts education. Students will find that this major is compatible with a wide range of minors or double majors such as (but not limited to) Biology, Chemistry, Health and Exercise Science, Philosophy or Psychology.

Neuroscience Career Paths


Neuroscientists perform research on the behavior of the nervous system and sometimes study the function of the nervous system such as neurotransmitters or behaviors of the nervous system such as psychiatric disorders.

Behavioral Analyst

Behavioral Analysts study personality traits and patterns of human behavior to better understand the science behind a person's decision making, motivations and actions.


Criminologists analyze all forms of criminal activity and hypothesize ways to reduce crime using their understanding of neuroscience to predict human behavior patterns.
