Students in the class of 2025 and earlier: The Neuroscience major cannot be modified with another major. However, students can petition to modify another major with neuroscience (e.g., Comp Sci modified with Neuro) if the primary major department allows it. If so, when submitting the major plan in DartWorks the student should include in the modification rationale information as to why a modification is preferable to minoring in neuroscience, and explaining which 4 neuroscience courses (in addition to the prerequisite PSYC 6) will be used for the modification, and why they are suitable.
Students in the class of 2026 and later: The Neuroscience major cannot be modified. This includes both modified majors in which neuroscience is the primary component (e.g., Neuroscience Modified with Biology) and those in which it is the secondary component (e.g., Biology Modified with Neuroscience). Students who seek to modify a major in another department with courses in neuroscience may do so by using the option of a modified major without indication of the secondary department (e.g., Biology Modified). Students who wish to have a more substantial study of neuroscience noted on their transcript are encouraged to declare a neuroscience minor.
