Students are working as neuroscientists in Clark Lingren’s The Language of Neurons, an introduction to biology course.
Neuroscience 250 students celebrate Brain Week with Grinnell middle school students.
As a neuroscience concentrator, you use methods and theories spanning disciplines from biochemistry to psychology to investigate the function of the nervous system. You can participate in an annual neuroscience retreat, middle school outreach, and a capstone seminar, along with cross-divisional electives in art, music, theatre, philosophy, education, and social studies. This concentration can prepare you for advanced study in neuroscience or careers in biotechnology, governmental, pharmaceutical, health care, and social service organizations.
