Neuroscience is the study of the nervous system, from the level of individual genes and proteins that control neural activity to mechanisms that govern complex human behavior. Northwestern’s undergraduate major in Neuroscience offers courses spanning these diverse topics, as well as interdisciplinary coursework through five Allied Fields.
Neuroscience students will be well-prepared for future careers in research, medicine, the biotech and other industries, science journalism, or patent law. For more information, see About the Neuroscience Major.
