The Multidisciplinary Studies, BS offers a structured concentration in neuroscience. Students fulfilling the degree requirements are awarded a Multidisciplinary Studies, BS.

Neuroscience is an interdisciplinary field under the umbrella of biomedical sciences that offers diverse coursework across academic disciplines that span STEM and the social sciences. The objective of the neuroscience structured concentration is to provide students with foundational and specialized knowledge of the nervous system at various structural and functional levels of analysis, including molecular, cellular, chemical, integrative, cognitive, and behavioral. In this program students acquire technical skills, advance their critical thinking, and refine their communication skills through faculty-mentored research experience opportunities and scholarly deliverables in the form of thesis projects. The neuroscience structured concentration is for students considering further study in advanced degree programs in the biomedical health sciences, medicine, or related health professions. 

To be accepted into the program, undergraduate students must have at least 30 s.h. of completed coursework, a minimum cumulative GPA of 2.3, and at least a grade of “C” in PSYC 1000  or PSYC 1060 .
