What You’ll Learn
You will receive a solid foundation in biology, chemistry, and psychology in order to communicate and work with experts to uncover how our brain and nervous system work.
Neuroscience is a growing interdisciplinary field that draws upon the knowledge base from biology, chemistry, and psychology. You will learn how to effectively communicate and work with experts across all three fields as well as how to apply their varied approaches to problem-solving. Select from many upper-division courses to deepen your knowledge in what interests you the most about neuroscience.
SUNY Brockport is one of the first SUNY institutions to offer an undergraduate degree in neuroscience.
You will have the opportunity for hands-on instruction through lab and field courses as well as high-impact experiences through undergraduate research and internships.Curriculum & Learning Outcomes
We recommend submitting first-year applications in October or early November. We decide your admission once you complete your application.

Interdisciplinary Education & Research
The Departments of Biology, Chemistry, and Psychology have active undergraduate research programs that you can pursue.
While the research may not always be directly working in the field of neuroscience, skills such as working independently, analyzing data, and searching through literature are all transferrable.
Many specialists working on cures for brain disorders such as Alzheimer’s disease and epilepsy are neuroscientists. Behavioral and cognitive neuroscientists study the biological mechanisms of thought, perception, memory, and behavior.. The field of Neuroscience also informs the development of artificial intelligence (AI).
With a neuroscience degree you can be an asset to employers in medicine, technology, and psychology in settings that include hospitals, research institutions, and companies.
