Cognitive Neuroscience Curriculum

Cognitive Neuroscience is anĀ Individualized Major. Students work with faculty in their areas of interest to develop a program that suits their needs, while still maintaining the framework of Cognitive Neuroscience. Therefore, there are core courses which should be taken by all students within this major and a number of other courses that student may take, depending on their area of interest.

Cognitive Neuroscience Core Courses

While there are certain recommended courses, it is important to remember that there is a lot of flexibility available for the individual student.

Cognitive Neuroscience Core Courses:
PSY100General Psychology (3)
PSY227Behavioral Science Statistics (4) or other acceptable statistics course
CSC210Computer Science and Programming I (3)
BIO202 & 203/115Human Biology with Lab (limited biology interest) or
Principles of Biology w/Lab (strong biology focus) (4)
PSY306Cognitive Psychology (3)
PSY430Human Neuropsychology (3)
