The rapidly expanding field of neuroscience focuses on the study of the nervous system. It is an interdisciplinary field involving biology, biochemistry, and psychology. A career in neuroscience requires graduate school study following an undergraduate degree. A B.A. from Luther in either biology or psychology, together with additional chemistry, mathematics, and physics, prepares one well for subsequent graduate study in neuroscience. Students should contact Scott Carlson of the biology department for additional information.
