This major leads to a Bachelor of Science, and is suitable for students interested in the physiology and neurobiology of humans and animals. Coursework and independent study opportunities span the fields of comparative physiology, neurobiology, molecular endocrinology, reproductive endocrinology, developmental neurobiology and neurochemistry.
The following 1000’s level courses are required:
- BIOL 1107, 1108;
- CHEM 1124Q–1126Q or 1127Q–1128Q;
