As a field of study, neuroscience includes any type of research related to the function of the central and peripheral nervous systems, i.e., the brain, spinal cord, nerves, and sensory organs. As such, neuroscience is incredibly broad and multidisciplinary. Neuroscientists may study the chemistry and physics of molecular interactions, genetics, cellular processes, interactions of neural systems, animal behavior, human cognition and psychology, disease processes, mathematical models, or computer-brain interfaces. Neuroscientists may be physicists, mathematicians, biologists, kinesiologists, physicians, psychologists.

Neuroscience majors at UT receive strong training in concepts and practice of neuroscience through coursework in neuroscience and related science and math disciplines. All neuroscience majors take lower-division coursework in calculus, biology, chemistry, physics. Depending on their chosen degree, they then take a number of cutting-edge upper-division neuroscience lecture and laboratory courses. UT offers 4 undergraduate degree programs in neuroscience. Information on each program can be found on the [link] page.
