Prospective Majors

Neuroscience is a highly collaborative, interdisciplinary field that offers insight into everything from the most basic physiologic reflexes, to the thought process behind art and mathematics. Similarly, the coursework includes instruction in disciplines as diverse as biophysics and philosophy.  You will be exposed to a variety of hypotheses and perspectives that inform the field. The B.S. in Neuroscience presents you with a program of study that will equip you to pursue a number of different career paths. The major draws on coursework throughout CAS and SOM, and will allow you to learn the disciplines you need for the career you want, from neuroscientists.

Equally important, you will have the opportunity to conduct neuroscience research under the supervision of faculty in multiple CWRU-affiliated schools and departments, including faculty at University Hospitals, the Cleveland Clinic, and affiliates of the Cleveland Brain Health Initiative. This unprecedented access to world-class neuroscience research will allow you to move forward the frontiers of scientific inquiry, even as you are discovering them.
