The Neurobiology option within the Bachelor of Science in Biology degree addresses the increasing student demand for more undergraduate courses in neurobiology and for more interdisciplinary preparation in neuroscience. Students in this option completes biology core courses in cell and molecular biology, evolution, development and physiology. Students may also take intensive courses in computer science, biochemistry, and neuroscience, learning about such issues as addiction or behavior. Many students in this degree option have plans to continue in biological research or medicine.
Current students interested in changing to the Neurobiology major should complete the following instructions:
- Complete the entry-level courses (Calculus 1, CH301/302, and BIO311C/D) with at least a C- or higher
- View the online information session.
- Complete the questionnaire at the end of the session and bring it your advising appointment.
- Schedule an appointment with the Biological Sciences Advising Center.
Current students who have not yet completed the entry-level requirements should schedule an appointment with an academic advisor in WCH 1.106. Contact the appropriate College of Natural Sciences Advising Center to schedule an appointment and change majors to Biological Sciences entry-level.
Prospective University of Texas at Austin students should visit to learn about the application process and how to declare a major.
