Studying Neuroscience at Regis

The Honors in Neuroscience major adds an independent research component to the Neuroscience major that further helps prepare students for graduate and professional schools or for research oriented laboratory work.
Classroom

B.S. in Neuroscience, Honors

Degree Overview

The Honors-in-Neuroscience major is designed for students who wish to complete a major research project as part of their program of study. To complete this major, a student must complete the same lower and upper division requirements of the Neuroscience major, plus at least four semester hours of Research in Neuroscience (taken over two or more semesters) and two semester hours of Senior Thesis.

Neuroscience is an interdisciplinary field in which scientists share a common interest in studying the anatomy, physiology, and function of the nervous system and how it regulates behavior. The major is designed to provide a strong foundation in Neuroscience while giving students the flexibility to select courses that prepare them for a wide variety of career options. These include, but are not limited to, graduate study in Neuroscience, Physiological Psychology, Neuropsychology, and healthcare areas such as physical therapy, neuro-rehabilitation and medicine. Neuroscience is also a major for students who are simply interested in understanding the nature of brain-behavior relationships and want to pursue the field as part of a liberal arts education. Students will find that this major is compatible with a wide range of minors or double majors such as (but not limited to) Biology, Chemistry, Exercise Science, Philosophy, or Psychology.
