The Neuroscience program at Wellesley University enables students to benefit from small classes and investigative labs in their introductory and advanced courses.
Our majors graduate with a liberal arts background and a strong foundation in neuroscience which allows them to proceed to medical school or attend top-ranked graduate neuroscience, cognitive science, and psychology Ph.D. programs, including UC Berkeley, UC San Diego, Duke, and Northwestern.
Wellesley's neuroscience majors graduate with a liberal arts background coupled with sufficient concentration in this specialized field to be competitive among students coming from exclusively research-oriented institutions.
Sixty percent of our graduates go from Wellesley to medical school. Approximately 15 percent of our majors continue on with graduate work in neuroscience, psychology, or neuropsychology, and approximately 10 percent pursue careers that intersect with neuroscience, such as work in the biotech industry, pharmacology, patent law, and science writing.
Students with graduate degrees in neuroscience are in demand for faculty positions in liberal arts colleges; research universities; and medical, dental, pharmacy, nursing, and veterinary schools. There are also exciting career opportunities in research and administrative positions in government laboratories such as the National Institutes of Health, in private research foundations, and in the pharmaceutical, biotechnology, and chemical industries.
