The Behavioral Neuroscience major will officially change from a BA to a BS Fall Quarter 2015. A course checklist for the BS is now posted on the advising page.
Behavioral Neuroscience (BNS) is the study of how nervous system structure and function produces normal and abnormal behavior.
This interdisciplinary program combines courses offered through the Departments of Biology, Chemistry, and Psychology.
The BNS curriculum, combined with an emphasis on undergraduate involvement in research, provides students with the specialized preparation and technical sophistication critical for success in post-graduate training programs and entry-level biomedical research positions.
WWU's Behavioral Neuroscience Program passed a milestone on December 13th when we graduated our 100th student!!! Below is part of the Fall 2014 graduating class attempting to spell out BNS with their bodies!
