This blog contains direct quotes from websites as of 2023. Programs and policies do change, at colleges, from time to time, so please check with the colleges directly to receive any updates. These are not, necessarily, the biggest, best, or most popular programs at the college, but they are the ones that just “caught my eye” as unique, special, interesting, or just plain awesome. Enjoy!
From the Holy Family University website, 2023: “The Neuroscience major is an interdisciplinary program that is supported by our biology/natural science and psychology programs. The field of Neuroscience examines the structure and function of the nervous system, as well as the interaction between the nervous system and behavior.
“Neuroscience incorporates many sub-fields such as biology, chemistry, and psychology. A degree in Neuroscience provides students with a unique opportunity to have a strong interdisciplinary background highly valued by prospective employers and graduate programs.
“The minor in Neuroscience will provide students with a foundation in this interdisciplinary field. Students will learn how components of the nervous system work together to coordinate physiological and cognitive functions. Students will gain an appreciation of the complex system and how changes in regulation can impact thoughts and actions.
“Neuroscience students have the opportunity to gain experience outside of the classroom by participating in our Experiential Learning program at a site off-campus or through research with our faculty in the biology or psychology departments.
“Graduates from the Neuroscience program to enter careers or graduate programs in the following areas:
Applied behavior analysis-BCBA
