The Minor in Neuroscience Research, offered by the Department of Psychology and Neuroscience, expands opportunities for Temple students to apply neuroscience knowledge in research settings and to become more competitive in their applications to graduate and professional schools. The required courses in the Neuroscience Research minor focus on basic neuroscience, neuroanatomy, cellular neuroscience and conducting research.
In addition to formal coursework, students are required to take two neuroscience elective courses. The students have options to take independent study courses that result in a research project as electives. The Neuroscience Research Project is a unique project developed over two semesters of independent study. This research project may not overlap with projects for other programs (e.g., Honors).
Minors are awarded only at the time of completion of the bachelor's degree and cannot be awarded either as a stand-alone program of study or after completion of the first bachelor's degree.
Curricular Overlap Policies
Students majoring in Psychology may declare a minor in Neuroscience Research and may double-count one elective and NSCI 3096 Conducting Neuroscience Research for both programs without taking any replacement coursework.
Because of some overlap in coursework, students cannot pursue both the Neuroscience Research minor and the Cognitive Neuroscience minor.
