Neuroscience is the interdisciplinary study of the nervous system and behavior. The Neuroscience at MMC integrates information from different disciplines, such as psychology, biology, and chemistry.
This minor gives students the opportunity to explore some of the most intriguing questions about behavior and science. This minor can be fulfilled with a psychology or biology major, which offers an excellent foundation for admission to graduate or professional programs, mainly for careers involving research, teaching, and medicine. Coordinator: Deirtra Hunter-Romagnoli, Ph.D.
