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 a variety of external and internal information to generate a variety of conscious and unconscious behaviors. Moreover, with an inherent emphasis on critical thinking, a neuroscience minor provides a valuable check on magical or mystical thinking about the human condition. The neuroscience minor may increase students' opportunities either to attend graduate school or to find positions in their professional field.
