Neuroscience encompasses the study of the nervous system and brain: its structure and function, how it underlies behavior and cognition, and how it is changed with injury and disease. Interdisciplinary by design, courses are taught by faculty from the College of Humanities & Sciences and the College of Health. Neuroscientists use their understanding of the brain and cognition to pursue careers in medicine, health professions, biomedical research, education, scientific writing, law, and business. The department offers training that leads to the Bachelor of Science, Master of Science, Dual BS/MS and Doctor of Philosophy degrees.
