The B.S. Program of Study

 Overview of the Curriculum

The B.S. in Neuroscience at Georgia Tech is an interdisciplinary degree that provides training in behavioral and cognitive, molecular, cellular and systems neuroscience. Students have a lot of flexibility in the design of their four-year program of study. In addition to a set of courses that make up the neuroscience core, students select from a list of neuroscience electives. Students complete a 15 credit-hour breadth elective specialization that allows a student to complete a minor in biology, biochemistry, chemistry, computer science, health medical sciences, mathematics, physics, physiology or psychology.

The B.S. in Neuroscience is an attractive degree program for students who are interested in health-related careers (e.g., medicine, pharmacy, dentistry, physical therapy, etc).  Prehealth students often pursue the Health Medical Sciences Minor as their breadth elective. Students should discuss their individual prehealth plans with neuroscience academic advisors and the Georgia Tech Prehealth Office. The B.S. in Neuroscience curriculum also offers an engineering specialization, a research option, and a business option.

First-year neuroscience students are encouraged to apply to reside in the Science, Health and Related Professions (SHaRP) Living Learning Community, or in the Science and Mathematics Research Training (SMART) Living Learning Community.
