The A.B. major in neuroscience comprises 5 foundational classes plus 5 elective courses. You should plan to complete all 5 foundational classes before your senior year, and before any in-depth seminar or lecture course at the 400-level or above. While this counsel is not enforced, it is strongly recommended and will certainly facilitate getting the most learning and practical experience out of your academic and scholarly activities in the Neuroscience major. The undergraduate curriculum for a bachelor of arts (A.B.) major in neuroscience is an interdisciplinary experience that presents the same fundamental challenge as our B.S. curriculum: exploration of knowledge derived from (1) the molecular and cellular level; (2) the level of neural circuits within which cells are organized and interconnected; and (3) the level of behavior where the functions of neural circuits and systems, including human cognition, are manifest. A comprehensive understanding of Neuroscience requires knowledge of each level, as well as integration across levels. The broad impact of discovery in neuroscience now extends beyond the natural sciences as neuroscientists collaborate with experts in ethics, law, business, social sciences, philosophy, the arts, and the humanities. Accordingly, the A.B. academic plan is designed to build on foundational knowledge and challenge learners to explore the broader impact of Neuroscience discovery on society and its increasing relevance to real-world problems.
