Undergraduate Degrees

All students have opportunities to:

  • conduct independent research
  • engage in globally-related activities through coursework and language study at Mason and abroad
  • participate in many forms of public service
  • prepare for their future careers through internships, career-focused minors and other college-to-career activities

BS in Neuroscience
The BS in neuroscience is an interdisciplinary program emphasizing the relationship between the biology and chemistry of the nervous system and the behavior of an organism. This degree prepares students for medical school or graduate study in neuroscience and other health-related fields as well as for work in the neuroscience field.

Minor in Neuroscience
Neuroscience is one of the most rapidly growing disciplines in science today. Due to its interdisciplinary nature, it draws on skills from anatomy, chemistry, electrical engineering, genetics, math, and psychology, among others. Students in these fields can benefit from an awareness of applications of these fields to neuroscience and through this minor, more directly prepare for later work in neuroscience.
