Neurobiology, Physiology and Behavior
- Doctor of Philosophy
Are you passionate about science? Do you love the idea of hands-on chemistry and biology labs? Then this major is perfect for you. Not only will you focus on organisms and their interactions within their environments, but you will also have the opportunity to be involved in research and internships. This is the most popular major within the College of Biological Sciences and the fifth most popular on campus. The neurobiology, physiology and behavior major educates pre-health students with the mindset to develop solutions that will help humans and animals lead healthy lives.
You'll begin your study with foundational courses in biological sciences, chemistry, mathematics and physics. At the upper-division level, you'll study advanced general topics in the biological sciences, and may also choose from such courses as animal behavior, physiology of particular organ systems or groups of animals, developmental neurobiology and endocrinology. You'll pursue a B.S. degree, providing rigorous training in biological science.
