You are your brain. Neuroscience combines scientific knowledge in disciplines such as chemistry, biology and psychology to study how the brain and nervous system guide thoughts, dreams and behavior. Students who major in neuroscience become:
They also excel in professions such as law and business, leveraging their critical thinking skills and the ability to synthesize diverse information.
Neuroscience majors become medical professionals (MD, DO, PA, PT, etc.), researchers (in biotech, pharmaceutical, hospitals, etc.), educators (teachers, professors, etc.), and can be found in many other professions (such as law, business, etc.) that value the critical thinking skills and ability to synthesize diverse information that is gained by studying neuroscience.
Most of our majors have attained careers in biomedical research or in the medical/allied health professions. Others have pursued careers in industry (biotech firms and pharmaceutical companies), government (NIH), law, insurance industry, and education (professors, career counselors).
Some of these careers require graduate-level degrees:
