Major in Neuroscience

The Dietrich College of Humanities & Social Sciences and the Mellon College of Science have joined forces to establish an exciting interdisciplinary program leading to a Bachelor of Science in Neuroscience.  The major includes course offerings from the departments of Psychology, Biology, and Computer Science, and the opportunity to specialize in Cognitive Neuroscience, Neurobiology, or Computational Neuroscience. All of these fields share the goal of understanding neural processes, and how these processes give rise to perception, memory, and learning.
