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.
“The living brain moves visibly. It pulses from changes in blood pressure. It glistens, blushes — and it’s beautiful, unmistakably complex and clearly vulnerable. This was a gripping experience.”
Bill Griesar, neuroscience instructor and outreach coordinator
