EIU B.S. in Neuroscience

About the Program

Neuroscience is one of the fastest growing disciplines in all of science, thanks to the continuous advancement in medical technology that is allowing us to learn more about the brain and integrate its function (or dysfunction) with behavior and cognition. The breakthroughs in neuroscience have led – and will continue to lead – to some of the most important developments in a wide range of fields, such as cognitive sciences, medicine, psychology, law, engineering, education, and public policy. 

The field of neuroscience is the study of the nervous system at different levels of interest – from molecules to cells, networks, the brain and entire body – and through the perspective of different disciplines. 

The Neuroscience Major provides students with comprehensive foundational knowledge on the organization, development, and function of the nervous system, and how this relates to cognition and behavior, and disorders of the same. The program emphasizes the perspective of different disciplines and the exposure of the students to hands-on research experience. The curriculum is designed to nurture the development of analytical, critical thinking, and communication skills, and to prepare students for careers and graduate training in neuroscience and related fields.
