Biology Major: Neuroscience As a biology major in the neuroscience track, you will study the vital processes of all organisms and the environments in which they flourish.
Welcome to the Neuroscience Program at Washington University in St. Louis Our Program offers outstanding neuroscience education for Ph.D. students and exciting research opportunities for Postdoctoral scientists. Decisions are based upon the student's statement, academic record, and interview with the major adviser. Steeped in history, the Department has its origins as the Department of Anatomy at the dawn of the last century. In addition to Chem 111A-112A or Chem 105-106 and the accompanying laboratory courses Chem 151-152, biology majors are required to take Chem 261 and either Chem 262 or Chem 401; Physics 191/191L-192/192L (or Physics 197-198 or Physics 117A-118A); Math 132 (Calculus II) and one of the following: Math 2200, Math 233, or Math 3200. Visit a page below to view more information about a specific minor. Cognitive neuroscience refers to scientific study of the linkage between mental functions and the operation of the brain and nervous system.
Below is a list of minors offered by the College of Arts & Sciences.
Within the neuroscience track, you will focus on the structure and function of the nervous system and the brain.
The minor is composed of a 6 unit introductory sequence (PNP 200 & 201 or FYP 120 & 122), followed by: 3 units in Philosophy (PNP/Phil 315, Philosophy of Mind or PNP/Phil 306G, Philosophy of Language) For the entire list of minors offered by all of the undergraduate schools, please visit the Minors (all schools) directory. Washington University students will be considered for admission to the cognitive neuroscience major no sooner than in their third semester (sophomore year). Minors must complete 15 units, of which 9 must be at the 300-level or above.

Courses Philosophy-Neuroscience-Psychology (PNP) is an interdisciplinary program that provides an opportunity to examine the mind from multiple perspectives.
The goal of cognitive neuroscience is to provide an understanding of psychological processes, such as attention, memory, thinking, and emotion in terms of physical principles and biological components.
