The Department of Psychological Science and the Department of Biological Sciences have developed a new minor: Neuroscience. It went into effect for the Fall 2013 semester.
The Neuroscience minor is an appropriate choice for anyone interested in a psychiatric healthcare career, including general medicine or nursing but especially psychiatry, pharmacology, psychiatric nursing, clinical psychology, or cognitive rehabilitation. This minor also provides a strong undergraduate foundation for further training in a graduate program in neuroscience or psychobiology.
