Neuroscience Program

Minor in Neuroscience

Neuroscience is one of the most rapidly growing disciplines in science today. Due to its interdisciplinary nature, it draws on skills from anatomy, chemistry, electrical engineering, genetics, math, and psychology, among others. Students in these fields can benefit from an awareness of applications of these fields to neuroscience and through this minor, more directly prepare for later work in neuroscience.

Note: a minor is a secondary field of study a student has outside of their major. This is different from a concentration, which is a narrow specialization within a student’s major/field of focus.


All students have opportunities to

  • conduct independent research
  • engage in globally-related activities through coursework and language study at Mason and abroad
  • participate in many forms of public service
  • prepare for their future careers through internships, career-focused minors and other college-to-career activities
