Academic Advising in Neuroscience
The Undergraduate Studies in Neuroscience program offers many options for study, research and intellectual enrichment. Students majoring in neuroscience are encouraged to develop a curriculum experience that is appropriate for their particular scientific interests, academic schedules and career objectives. The Director of Undergraduate Studies (DUS) in Neuroscience, the Associate DUS and the program coordinator are all available to provide general guidance to students first exploring the major, as well as answers to specific questions that may arise along the way. In addition, each student who has declared neuroscience as their (primary) major will be advised and assisted throughout the course of their subsequent academic career by a faculty/neuroscientist who is familiar with our undergraduate curriculum. This faculty member will be the student’s academic advisor in the major.
To facilitate matching a student’s interests with the expertise of the faculty, newly declared neuroscience majors will be asked to complete and submit and brief form that will provide helpful information for this purpose. If you are one such newly declared major, our program coordinator, Cindy Sherwood, will be contacting you shortly to provide you with the advisement form.
