> YOU CAN MAJOR IN NEURO!

The Department of Biology now offers a Bachelor of Science in Biology with a concentration in Neurobiology.  The concentration is a great way to become familiar with some of the big ideas in Neuroscience, and to find out if this is something you’d like to pursue in graduate or medical school. 

To declare the concentration, consult an undergraduate advisor in the College of Sciences Undergraduate Advising Center. It is highly recommended that all Neuro concentrators complete a Neuro research project by taking BIO 4923 Laboratory Research: Biology Concentrations. If you take any of the courses listed below that satisfy both the Biology degree and concentration requirements, then you may take additional upper-division Neuro courses in order to meet the minimum number of semester credit hours required for the Biology degree. The coursework within the concentration must be completed with a minimum cumulative grade point average of 3.0 or better.

Concentration in Neurobiology
All candidates for the Concentration in Neurobiology must complete the following:

BIO  3433, 3442  Neurobiology and Laboratory

And two of the following upper-division elective courses:
BIO  3213  Animal Behavior
BIO  3623  Neuropsychopharmacology
BIO  4583  The Computational Brain
BIO  4813  Brain and Behavior
BIO  4823  Cognitive Neuroscience
BIO  4923  Laboratory Research: Biology Concentrations (Research must be in a laboratory engaged in neurobiology research.  Browse laboratories here).

Contact us here to find out more about research opportunities for BIO 4923.  Our research laboratories are an exciting environment in which to learn and contribute to original research in Neuroscience.
