Neuroscientists study how the brain and nervous system work. If you’re interested in why people or animals do what they do, how they do it, and what happens when those processes go awry, neuroscience may be the field for you.
Neuroscience is an interdisciplinary major that exposes students to the intersection of biology and psychology and then encourages them to make links to other areas of interest. Because neuroscience is a broad field, students majoring in it at Wartburg have the opportunity to focus on their own areas of interest through advanced research courses and diverse electives.
Neuroscience majors can pursue careers in neuroscience research, medicine, physical therapy, occupational therapy, psychiatry, pharmacology, cognitive psychology, robotics, science writing, and many, many more fields.
