Dept. of Psychology Adds New Behavioral Neuroscience Major

Tuesday, June 19, 2012

The Department of Psychological Sciences is proud to announce a new major offering: Behavioral Neuroscience.

Behavioral Neuroscience -

The Behavioral Neuroscience major is an interdisciplinary major within the department of Psychological Sciences, which emphasizes the interaction of behavior with biological systems including brain pathways, nervous systems and hormonal systems. Disciplines such as psychology, biology, chemistry, anthropology, and philosophy all contribute to a cohesive understanding of psychological functions from a biological perspective. The assimilation of disciplines helps students develop intellectual skills in critical thinking and sound reasoning, and requires integration of knowledge from multiple levels of analysis, all of which are important characteristics of a liberal arts education. Career opportunities include jobs in healthcare, academia, government and the private sector.
