Neuroscientists specialize in the study of the brain and the nervous system. The field of neuroscience is growing rapidly as scientists still have not uncovered the full extent of what the brain can do.
The neuroscience major at Wartburg is an interdisciplinary major that combines coursework in biology and psychology. Students learn about cells, molecules, and the role they play in thinking. They study the central nervous system and the biology of nervous disorders such as depression, epilepsy, and Alzheimer’s.
Neuroscience majors can pursue careers in medicine, veterinary medicine, pharmacology, audiology, speech pathology, occupational therapy, special education, drug rehabilitation, and many more fields.
