Minor in Neuroscience- Neuroscience is the study of the nervous system, incorporating the perspectives of several fields of study. Students will explore the relationship between the brain, the rest of the body, and the environment with respect to affect, behavior, and cognition. The disciplines of biology, psychology, and philosophy are particularly pertinent to this interdisciplinary minor. This interdisciplinary minor is well suited to Biological Sciences, Health & Society, and Psychology majors, pre-health-professions students or those interested in a career in neuroscience.
Minor in Cognitive Science- An interdisciplinary minor focused on the study of the mind and the nature of cognition and intelligence, from the perspectives of psychology and philosophy, and potentially (depending upon which courses students elect to take) other disciplines including computer science, neuroscience, linguistics, or mathematics. Topics include the nature of cognition, consciousness, perception, memory, emotion, language acquisition, reasoning, decision-making and behavior, using tools from neuroscience, computer modelling, neural networks, artificial intelligence, and formal logic.
Dr. Alicia Meuret was awarded a Rotunda Outstanding Teaching (ROPA) Award by the 2018 Rotunda Yearbook staff.
