Welcome to the exciting world of biomedical research at WSU Vancouver.
The undergraduate major in neuroscience is interdisciplinary, combining biology and psychology. It is designed to prepare you for careers in biomedical and clinical health sciences, including pre-medicine and other health-related fields. Neuroscience graduates from WSU Vancouver successfully compete for enrollment and graduate and professional schools in health-related fields.
You’ll also have the opportunity to contribute to some of the most important scientific questions of our time: How do your brain cells allow you to hear music, form memories, feel pain, become addicted to drugs? Learn how the brain and nervous system are altered in disorders like epilepsy, glaucoma, schizophrenia and Parkinson’s.
