At the frontier of science today, neuroscience is the study of how the brain and nervous system acquire, process and integrate information from the environment and how this information brings about behavior of an organism. It’s an integrative discipline – which Concordia does especially well as a liberal arts college – and you’ll benefit from courses in chemistry, biology and psychology.
