Return to Neuroscience and Behavior Program Return to: Neuroscience and Behavior Program

Additional Courses:


After consultation with the major adviser, five other courses not taken as Required Courses (see list above) should be chosen from the list of approved courses (see here ). Two of these courses should be at the 200-level, one of these from the biology department and one from the psychology department. Only one of BIOL 248 , BIOL 238 , or BIOL 244  may count towards the major. Three of the five courses should be at the 300-level. Of these three courses at the 300-level, at least one should be from the biology department and one from the psychology department. No course beyond the 100-level taken NRO can be counted toward the requirements of the major.

Recommendations:


Students are strongly recommended to complete CHEM 108 -CHEM 109  and CHEM 244 -CHEM 245  and would benefit greatly from coursework in mathematics, physics, and computer science. Students are advised to take in their freshman year: BIOL 105 , BIOL 106 , and PSYC 105  or PSYC 106 .

Junior Year Abroad:


Students studying away during their junior year may transfer a maximum of two credits towards the Neuroscience and Behavior major. Of those two credits, only one may satisfy a Biology requirement and only one may satisfy a Psychology requirement. Further, only one may satisfy a 300-level requirement. The Neuroscience and Behavior Program does not accept Junior Year Abroad transfer credit for NEUR /PSYC 229  , NEUR /PSYC 249 , NEUR 201 , or NEUR 301 . As per College policy, all Junior Year Abroad transfer credit should be approved by the director of the Neuroscience and Behavior Program before the travel takes place.
