Sample 4-Year Plan for Majors

Below is an example of a 4-year plan for a neuroscience major. Note that more GE's are listed than are actually required- students may consider adding a minor or second major to fill their schedule if time permits. Those interested in pursuing graduate study in neuroscience or a related field are encouraged to take additional advanced courses in areas such as chemistry, biochemistry, biology, physics, psychology, genetics, and computer science. Please speak with an advisor to ensure that all of your general education (GE) requirements are met and that any AP or transfer credits apply. Math through the first semester of calculus (Math 1151) is required for a B.S. in neuroscience.
