The broad-based curriculum and rich research opportunities of the Neuroscience program of Knox College will help you gain an understanding of neuroscience with a breadth and depth that will prepare you for graduate and professional school, as well as for positions in the private and public sector. Neuroscience graduates have gone on to doctoral programs at institutions such as University of Southern California, Emory, Duke University, Northwestern University, Cornell University, University of Minnesota, University of Texas-Austin, University of California-Los Angeles, Finch University, and State University of New York-Binghamton.
Neuroscience graduates are employed in diverse settings, including research at universities or pharmaceutical companies; medicine as neurologists, clinical neurologists, neurosurgeons, physical therapists, or psychiatrists; policy-making bodies in the government; and the criminal justice system.
Advanced courses provide opportunities for an immersion in the field of neuroscience, including neurophysiology, neurochemistry, and affective and cognitive neuroscience. Research methods and statistics are covered in courses in either biology, for those with a cellular and molecular focus, or psychology, for students interested in a behavioral focus.As a neuroscience student, you will complete a two-term research experience in which you, under the mentorship of a faculty member, will conduct original neuroscience research. The process includes reviewing literature, generating a hypothesis, collecting and analyzing data, and presenting results in written and oral form.
