Declaring a Major

Declaring a major in Neuroscience

Due to the impact of COVID-19, declarations will be handled differently than in the past. Your health and safety are important to us and we are here to help! Dr. Kilman and Dr. Brown are here to assist you make the best choice for you.

If you are considering becoming a Neuroscience Major or are certain that you will become a Neuroscience Major:

You may declare a major in Neuroscience at any point up until your Petition to Graduate is filed, but it is preferable to declare by Winter quarter of your sophomore year. If you are dropping another major, this can be done using the same form and at the same time that you declare Neuroscience as your major.

NOTE: Requests for appointments may be made by emailing neuroscience@u.northwestern.edu.  Please be sure to list when you are available to meet with an adviser Monday through Friday, 11 am until 4 pm.  If you are unavailable during these times, please request an exception listing your availability.
