The field of neuroscience explores knowledge at the intersection of biology, psychology and computational science.
“I am now a first year osteopathic medical student. I absolutely loved my time at Samford as a Biology major / Neuroscience minor. ”
“Getting oriented to a cadaver lab is a whole step you have to get through before you can learn and I already had that and more under my belt because of Samford! We worked on cranial nerves this week and my neuroscience minor had me prepared. Instead of trying to learn all the funny names of the nerves, I could focus on where they were exiting in the skull. My professors and mentors were the best advocates to myself that even when it doesn’t seem like it, I can do it!”
—Sarah Thomas, Class of ‘21
The neuroscience major is centered on small, discussion-based classes that focus on ethical and academic content. The major emphasizes hands-on exploration through faculty-mentored student research and guided internships in both psychology and biology, the two departments that co-host this major. Unlike other schools where the major is housed in only one department, sharing this major in both departments ensures the well-rounded and analytical approach that does not lose sight of the very human applications of this work and how it glorifies God and Creation.
