Interdisciplinary Concentration in Neuroscience for Biology, Psychology, and Biochemistry and Molecular Biology Majors
Majors in biology, psychology, or biochemistry and molecular biology with a special interest in neurobiology or behavioral neuroscience may apply to pursue an interdisciplinary concentration in neuroscience. The interdisciplinary concentration in neuroscience may only be completed with a Bachelor of Science degree. Because of the scheduling demands of the concentration, students are strongly encouraged to declare as early as possible (fall of sophomore year is suggested).
To qualify for a Bachelor of Science degree, students must complete the degree requirements stated under Graduation, including general education requirements, wellness, curriculum, achievement, and residency requirements, along with completion of the requirements for at least one major. The B.S. degree at the University of Richmond requires a concentration in science and quantitative reasoning. The B.S. degree will require depth of coursework and/or research as determined by the department or program along with Math 211 (or equivalent) and a second course that focuses on advanced quantitative methods appropriate to scientific inquiry.
Students are expected to fulfill all prerequisites necessary for courses within the major. Prerequisites do not count toward the major unless otherwise noted.
