Why Earn Your BS in Neuroscience?
The multidisciplinary study of neuroscience draws on the fields of biology and psychology to understand how the brain generates behavior, emotion and cognition. It provides excellent preparation for medical school and graduate studies and offers a gateway to careers in the research industry and fields related to psychology, gerontology, biology, chemistry, physics, physical therapy, speech pathology and audiology, nursing, special education, biomedical engineering, business, and law, among many others.
Why Major in Neuroscience at Adelphi?
- Focus your studies by choosing from one of two concentrations, cognitive neuroscience and molecular neuroscience.
- Gain hands-on exposure to cognitive and molecular neuroscience research, working alongside renowned psychology and biology faculty.
- Receive personal attention in small classes that explore complex issues from multiple perspectives integrating biology, psychology, chemistry and computer science.
What Can You do with a Degree in Neuroscience?
This degree is a gateway to careers in the sciences—from psychology to biology, chemistry, biomedical engineering, nursing, gerontology, speech-language pathology and occupational therapy. Or, you can make an impact in other fields, such as special education, business, law and public health.
We offer two areas of concentration:
The study of how the neural connections in the brain create mental processes and thought.
The examination of how genes and molecules regulate nerve cell.
