Neuroscience explores the biology and psychology of the nervous system.

Neuroscience students at Wittenberg complete core coursework in behavioral neuroscience, cognitive neuroscience, molecular neuroscience and neurobiology, as well as at least one elective course in biology, chemistry, computer science, math, philosophy or psychology.

In addition, neuroscience students at Wittenberg engage in experiential learning in research or community settings. These hands-on opportunities help students learn how to effectively write and present their neuroscience findings.

Our faculty study topics such as pharmacological treatments for mental illness, genes underlying psychiatric disorder, cognition and behavior, and autonomic nervous system dysfunction.
