Students studying neuroscience will be prepared to pursue professional programs (medical, dental, veterinary, clinical psychology, or other health professions) and graduate programs in areas such as neuroscience, biological sciences or psychology.
The Minor in Science and Patient Advocacy prioritizes understanding disease at the molecular, genetic, and clinical levels. Students study the natural history of disease and use that information to support researchers, clinicians, patients and families. The goal of this program is to provide undergraduate students with the scientific proficiency needed to be effective advocates for patients with rare disease.
Through a multidisciplinary approach, the minor prepares students to serve as leaders in their communities - local, national, and international - by making constructive and substantive contributions to the development of more sustainable practices for the benefit of their own personal and professional lives, the lives of others, and the lives of future generations.
