Meet our Cell Biology and Neuroscience Majors and Alumni

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: Cell Biology and Neuroscience Style



Neuroscience has always been appealing to me because the brain is such an enigma. Even though we have a lot of information about the brain and how it operates, there is still so much that remains unknown. Having the opportunity to study in such a developing field is very exciting."
