  • Neuroscience - Behavioral and Cognitive Track

    Neuroscience is the study of the nervous system and its impact on behavior and cognitive functions. This interdisciplinary field integrates several disciplines, including psychology, psychiatry, biology, chemistry, and physics. Because the study is interdisciplinary, the Neuroscience major involves multiple units, including the Department of Psychological & Brain Sciences, the Department of Biology, and the College of Veterinary Medicine and Biomedical Sciences in collaboration with the Department of Neuroscience and Experimental Therapeutics (NExT) in the College of Medicine in offering this degree, as well as the Texas A&M Institute for Neuroscience (TAMIN).  The concentration of this degree that focuses on Behavioral and Cognitive Neuroscience is housed within the Department of Psychological & Brain Sciences.

    Students will develop competency in foundational coursework in the life and physical sciences, including biology, chemistry, and physics. Based on their individual career aspirations and interests, students will complete coursework in neuroscience that involves psychological and biological processes, as well as translational issues relevant to medical science and/or pharmacology, neural engineering, and biochemistry. Nationwide, there is increasing interest in neuroscience programs and training. In part, this interest is driven by changes in the employment market that focus on technical and medical support jobs. Students completing a B.S. in Neuroscience will be well prepared for graduate study, as well as to enter entry-level healthcare and technical occupations.
