Undergraduate Catalog 2013–2014

Neuroscience Minor

To complete the minor, students take the introductory course and lab, one specialty course, one elective course (3 or 4 credits), one practicum (3 credits), and the capstone course. Students must also take one additional course from either the elective (with a minimum of 3 credits) or practicum (with a minimum of 3 credits) categories. No more than 8 credits from courses required by name and number for a major can be applied toward requirements for the minor. Students must have their course of study approved by a minor adviser so that it can be tailored to their major and so that courses with variable credits will not become problematic.
