Brain Synapses

The Carleton College neuroscience minor weaves together courses from biology and psychology 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.

Neuroscience 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 minor courses, and to discuss the more complex and exciting issues of neuroscience.
