Degree Requirements for Multidisciplinary Studies with a Concentration in Neuroscience
The BS Multidisciplinary Studies degree differs from the BA degree in that it requires more structured neuroscience elective courses to be taken. Students will need to complete 21 semester hours of neuroscience electives instead of 9 for the BA degree.
The BA Multidisciplinary Studies degree, compared to the BS degree, requires fewer structured neuroscience elective courses, but adds the University requirement of four levels of foreign language.
Double Major (of particular interest to Psychology majors)
For students also working toward a BA degree in psychology, the following psychology courses overlap with those required / offered in neuroscience (see neuroscience major checksheet):
As stated in the Undergraduate Catalog (under Double Major Requirements), four levels of foreign language is not required when students have a BS/BA double major and the BS degree is their primary major. With careful planning, students should take non-overlapping psychology courses in addition to those above, that will enable them to also fulfill the psychology major.
