Undergraduate Neuroscience Major

Neuroscience Minor

The Neuroscience minor is an intercollege minor offered by the College of Humanities, Arts, and Social Sciences and the College of Natural and Agricultural Sciences.

The College of Humanities, Arts, and Social Sciences offers minor programs; however, no student is required to take a minor. Minors are not degree-granting majors; they are sequences of supplemental courses designed to enhance work in certain areas. Any minor may be taken jointly with any departmental or interdepartmental major.

The College of Natural and Agricultural Sciences offers minor programs. Each minor consists of not fewer than 20 nor more than 28 units of organized upper-division courses. No more than 4 units of 190-199 courses may be used in fulfilling the upper-division unit requirement for a minor. No more than 8 units may be counted towards both the major and the minor. The department, program, or interdisciplinary committee offering the minor is responsible for student and administrative issues pertaining to the minor. Students must file a declaration of a minor by filing a petition with the College's Student Affairs Office at least two quarters before graduation and must be in good academic standing at the time of filing. A minor requires the signature of the department chair or chair of the faculty committee which supervises the minor and the signature of the Associate Dean.
