Visit the official programme website for more information

Overview

The hallmark of the Neurobiology program at the University of California, Irvine (UCI)  is a year-long, in-depth exploration of the intellectual tools used to create, advance, and disseminate knowledge about the nervous system.

Students completing the Neurobiology major will be well qualified for admission to graduate or professional schools in preparation for careers in biological research, medicine, dentistry, veterinary medicine, nursing, and other related fields. 

Educational Opportunity

Even without additional education, they will be competitive for positions in the pharmaceutical industry, the health care delivery industry, or in medically or biologically related technologies. 

The major also provides valuable preparation for students interested in entering other disciplines that increasingly interface with biology and biotechnology, such as law, business administration, and government policy. Additionally, the major provides excellent preparation for students who wish to become high school science teachers.
