The Neuroscience Program
The UE Neuroscience program offers students a challenging curriculum, taught by talented faculty, that will prepare them for careers in psychology, medicine, research, or a variety of other, related fields.
Established in 1976, the neuroscience program has an interdisciplinary focus and combines courses from psychology, biology, chemistry, and other sciences to understand the structure and function of the nervous system. Completion of this program prepares students for graduate training in neuroscience, including the behavioral, cognitive or molecular fields. This program also fulfills admission requirements for most medical schools and other health care professional schools.
The learning environment is rich with opportunities in faculty-guided research, original, individual research study, and hands-on investigations into the organization of the nervous system and behavior. Students will engage in topics such as:
- Microscopic structure of the brain and its biological processes
- Role of the brain in behavioral processes
