Concordia places a high value on integrative learning – those experiences that help you apply what you're learning in the classroom and lab to real-world situations.
As a neuroscience major, you will complete 2 credits of intensive experiential learning beyond the classroom. Some of these 2-credit experiences may come from cooperative education, independent studies or directed research.
To meet the 2-credit requirements, students must:
1. Demonstrate significant involvement and scholarly commitment to the activity. 2. Complete the experiential learning component at any time in the curriculum. 3. Submit a plan for achieving their experiential learning requirement no later than the end of the fall semester in their sophomore year.
Some examples of a 2-credit experience:
Intramural faculty-mentored research
Neuroscience cooperative education and internships with reflective writing and research components
Interdisciplinary community projects like writing a major paper or completing related to a student's work at NRI, Prairie St. John, CCRI
Leadership of community-based Brain Awareness Week programming
