Cognitive Neuroscience Minor

Neuroscience non-majors will also have the option to minor in Cognitive Neuroscience. A minor in Cognitive Neuroscience requires 18 hours of course work. Cognitive Neuroscience minors must complete 9 hours of required courses and 9 hours of qualifying elective courses in Cognitive Neuroscience.


Psychology majors are eligible to minor in Cognitive Neuroscience with the following stipulations:

1) Since all PSYC majors must take PSYC 1010 , PSYC 1010  cannot count for the Cognitive Neuroscience minor. Instead, PSYC majors must take an additional NSCI Elective course from the list above (raising the elective requirement from 9 hours to 12 hours).

2) PSYC majors cannot have any course that counts for the major to simultaneously count for the minor. This means that all Neuroscience courses taken for the minor cannot be counted toward the PSYC major.
