Admission To The Neuroscience Track
Applications from the Graduating Class of 2020 are now being accepted. Interviews and decisions about admission to the Neuroscience Track for students in this graduating class begin in January 2018.
Applications from the Graduating Class of 2019 are being accepted on a waiting list. Applicants from the waiting list will be interviewed when space becomes available.
Undergraduate Washington University Neuroscience Majors
For students with interests in Neuroscience, there are several distinct choices in Arts & Sciences.
For those with interests in the Biological Bases of Neuroscience, the Neuroscience Track of the Biology Major is recommended. http://wubio.wustl.edu/undergraduate/major/neuroscience-track
For those with very strong interests in Human Cognitive Neuroscience, the Cognitive Neuroscience Major offered by the Department of Psychological and Brain Sciences is recommended. http://psychweb.wustl.edu/cogneuro
For those interested in Human Cognitive Neuroscience but who wish to obtain a broad background in Psychology, a Supplemental Concentration in Cognitive Neuroscience offered by the Department of Psychological and Brain Sciences is recommended. http://psychweb.wustl.edu/undergraduate
For those with interests in Philosophy and Neuroscience and Psychology, a Philosophy-Neuroscience-Psychology (PNP) Major is recommended. http://pnp.artsci.wustl.edu/undergraduate/major
For those with broad interests in several areas of Neuroscience, either a double major or a major and minor in two of the above programs should be considered.
