Neuroscience is a rapidly expanding field and an undergraduate minor will benefit students studying in many scientific disciplines (e.g., biology; zoology; psychology; chemistry), pre-professional and professional areas (e.g., exercise science; nursing; pharmacy), as well as in the humanities and social sciences. Students learn how the brain and nervous system receives and processes information to generate and guide a variety of conscious and unconscious behaviors. Moreover, with an inherent emphasis on critical thinking, a neuroscience minor provides a valuable basis for thinking about the human condition in terms of measurable data. The neuroscience minor may increase students' opportunities to attend graduate school or to find positions in their professional field.
