B.S. in Neuroscience

The B.A. in Neuroscience, which replaces the Psychobiology B.S. degree, is administered by USC Neuroscience. The program gives undergraduate students the opportunity to learn about and analyze brain and behavior at multiple levels from an interdisciplinary perspective. Neuroscientists tackle questions such as: how does the brain engender sensation and perception, learning and memory, mind and consciousness, and emotions such as fear, joy and anger? The program requires six courses in psychology, seven courses in biology, and basic science courses in chemistry, physics and mathematics.
