A minor in Neuroscience is considered an interdisciplinary minor with course selections in the Departments of Biology, Psychology, Philosophy and Veterinary Integrative Biosciences. Please be aware that each course selection may have prerequisite requirements that must be met.
To apply for admission to the Minor in Neuroscience, students must visit the Neuroscience Advising Office during walk-in hours. A Minor Approval Form will be completed and must be signed by the NRSC academic advisor and then submitted to your major advisor. The minor must be declared before the student has completed 95 hours.
