Majoring in Cell Biology and Neuroscience can take you where you want to go!

Our tiered curriculum structure, along with an expanding selection of elective course topics, enables our majors to acquire a broad and solid foundation necessary for careers in biological and health sciences. Our core courses expose students to a wide range of topics in current cell biology and neuroscience and their application in medical research and health treatments. In addition, as the majority of our graduates plan to pursue career in life science and health fields, we also offer an expanding selection of elective courses covering important topics in these fields including cell biology, neuroscience, physiology, virology, parasitology, immunology, histology and endocrinology.

Arts and Sciences in Action: A Biological View of the World


"I am so incredibly passionate about developmental biology. The cellular processes that occur upon the unison of a single microscopic sperm and egg, which eventually give rise to a giant macroscopic living, breathing, moving entity, is absolutely riveting. The human body is a beautiful mechanism in motion; I knew that the best way to learn and understand it was to study CBN."
