Neuroscience Concentration

  • Brain Synapses

The Carleton College neuroscience concentration weaves courses from biology and psychology together to provide a strong foundation. We recognize the broad spectrum of topics that neuroscience touches in our choice of electives, which come from many departments including linguistics, philosophy, computer science, and music, as well as psychology and biology. Concentration students will have the opportunity at the end of their experience to interact with all relevant faculty and other students as a group in our capstone seminar, to apply what they learned in the concentration courses, and to discuss the more complex and exciting issues of neuroscience.
