NeuroscienceConcordia is recognized for its outstanding science programs and neuroscience is no exception. An excellent addition to any science or math major, Concordia’s neuroscience program is distinctive among peer institutions in its emphasis on physical science, particularly chemistry. As neuroscience researchers increasingly find it necessary to understand neuro-related phenomena from a molecular point of view, you’ll definitely have an edge on the competition with a Concordia neuroscience minor.
At the frontier of science today, neuroscience is the study of how the brain and nervous system acquire, process and integrate information from the environment and how this information brings about behavior of an organism. It’s an integrative discipline – which Concordia does especially well as a liberal arts college – and you’ll benefit from courses in chemistry, biology and psychology. One-on-one research with faculty and small class sizes will give you just the background in neuroscience you desire.
