Jointly offered by the Biology and Psychology Departments, this interdisciplinary major provides students with an opportunity to explore the underpinnings of the life sciences and human behavior. This curriculum provides excellent preparation for careers in medicine and other health-related fields, as well as careers in science and psychology-related areas. It is also an excellent foundation for graduate studies in the life sciences (e.g., neurobiology, physiology, microbiology), the interdisciplinary field of neuroscience, and various programs in psychology (e.g., clinical, neuropsychology, health). Students should declare this major by the end of their freshman year.
