Two different degrees are offered:
- The Bachelor of Arts degree (BA) in Neuroscience provides students with a general background in neuroscience and provides flexibility with fewer requirements for quantitative and physical science courses.
- The Bachelor of Science degree (BS) in Neuroscience is an intensive option that provides students with a strong background in several areas of neuroscience and is recommended for students pursuing a career in research.
Full details and recommendations are provided in the University Bulletin.
