It has been stated that the human brain may be the single most complex living structure in the world, and therefore requires both a breadth and depth in learning and study exemplified by a liberal arts and sciences education.
Drawing from a wide range of fields including biology, psychology, chemistry, mathematics, philosophy, sociology and art, Emmanuel College provides two distinct, yet complementary, pathways for students to explore how the brain functions within the diverse field of neuroscience-from coursework to applied internships.
If you are interested in the neurobiology and neurochemistry of the brain and look to explore the genetics, molecular biology, anatomy and biochemistry of the brain as they relate to brain function and neurological disorders, then the biology major with a concentration in neuroscience may be right for you. If you are more interested in exploring the brain through the lens of genetics, human psychopathology and the philosophy of the mind, you will find your path in the psychology neuroscience major. Or complement your major in political science, education or another field with a neuroscience minor.
