These are some of the exciting questions about human behavior and disease that neuroscience explores. The undergraduate degree in neuroscience provides training that encompasses both biology and psychology. This combination is ideal in preparing you for health-related careers that require strong scientific training and an understanding of human or animal behavior.
With a degree in neuroscience you often work as a researcher or lab assistant. You can work for medical centers, universities, or drug companies. Most advanced research jobs require a graduate degree for entry into the field.
The degree includes four core neuroscience courses that provide a bridge linking the biology and psychology courses you will also take as part of the program. Participation in neuroscience research or outreach is also a key part of the educational experience. A wide range of research opportunities is available on the WSU Vancouver campus and neighboring research organizations.
