Programs of Study
Neuroscience majors take several courses to learn about the brain and then take a further concentration in Psychology, Biology, or Chemistry. This curriculum allows students to graduate with two majors: Neuroscience and one of the three Life Sciences listed above.
Major in Neuroscience
Neuroscience Majors must meet the published requirements of the Biology Major (minimum of 36 hours), Chemistry Major (minimum of 35.5 hours), or Psychology Major (minimum of 43 hours), and also successfully complete the courses specified below. Neuroscience Majors will have the option of receiving either the B.A. or B.S. degree. Consistent with the College's policy on the awarding of two Bachelor's Degrees, Neuroscience Majors may not be awarded a second bachelor's degree by utilizing the same major they used (e.g., Psychology, Biology or Chemistry) to earn their Neuroscience degree.
Minor in Neuroscience
Baldwin Wallace University offers an interdisciplinary minor in Neuroscience. This minor grew out of the recognition that modern science frequently draws upon multiple disciplines to answer difficult questions. The study of the brain presents such a scientific challenge. Further, the minor was established in recognition of the many recent advances in brain sciences and the corresponding increase in the number of graduate programs and employment opportunities in this field.
