Bachelor in Neuroscience
Neuroscience is a scientific discipline dedicated to understanding the structure and function of the nervous system in health and disease. The interdisciplinary Bachelor in Neuroscience at Kent State University (visit KSU virtual tour) offers students the opportunity to explore and learn about brain development, neural control of physiology, neural basis of behavior, and neurobiology of aging.
Neuroscience coursework includes for example two semesters of foundational Neuroscience lecture courses, a hands-on Neuroscience research laboratory course and a seminar in Neuroscience course, where students will learn about the fundamentals and research techniques used in the Neurosciences.
This major also provides a vast array of opportunities for students to participate and gain real world and hands-on experiences in cutting-edge molecular, cellular, and behavioral research in the laboratories of Kent State University Neuroscience faculty and the Brain Health Research Institute. Neuroscience undergraduates can also participate in ongoing Neuroscience research at the Northeast Ohio Medical University.
The Neuroscience program at Kent State University is an excellent choice for students interested in graduate school, medical school or a career in clinical psychology, medicine, basic, translational or pharmaceutical research.
Coursework is taught by the Faculty from the Departments of Biological Sciences and Psychological Sciences, which include:
Lecture and small seminar classes. For enrollment assistance go to Academic advising.
Hands-on neuroscience research laboratories.
Opportunities to participate in cutting-edge molecular, cellular and behavioral research in the laboratories of our Neuroscience Faculty.
