Student Learning Outcomes
In successfully completing a minor in Neuroscience, a student will:
- Understand the basic molecular, cellular, and anatomical structures of the nervous system;
- Relate these structural elements to their proximate functions, as well as to the emergent behavior of the whole nervous system;
- Integrate relevant theories from multiple fields within biology and psychology to construct a holistic understanding of the nervous systems;
- Explore modern experimental and analytical methodologies in biology and psychology with relevance to neuroscience;
- Relate their understanding of nervous systems to pertinent societal issues, such as neurodegenerative disorders, mental health, and drug use.
