Overview

Neuroscience is an interdisciplinary major in which students obtain a strong foundation of courses in biology, psychology, and math with the flexibility to also pursue individual interests in chemistry, biology, and computer science. The Neuroscience Program focuses on hands-on experience that is driven by course laboratories, internships, and senior research projects. 

Neuroscience majors at Westminster College New Wilmington complete a two-semester long senior project in which they design and explore a unique neuroscience question- some of these projects result in presentations at national scientific professional meetings and published papers. Students can learn to monitor a classmate’s brain activity in our Cognitive Neuroscience laboratory, or test learning and memory with rats in our Behavioral Neuroscience laboratory. 

Career

Neuroscience students at Westminster are well prepared for medical or graduate school, but also pursue a wide variety of other careers.
