Neuroscience Program

Neuroscience is a window into the mind. It’s a diverse, interdisciplinary area dedicated to the study of the brain, spinal cord and sensory systems that advances our understanding of thought, emotion and behavior, physiology, and disease. We explore the following areas:

  • Cognitive and behavioral neuroscience
  • Computational neuroscience
  • Developmental neuroscience
  • Electrophysiology
  • Neurogenetics
  • Pharmacology

The neuroscience major at Christopher Newport prepares you for entry into this field through rigorous coursework and labs, and innovative opportunities for real-world learning.

Neuroscience is an ideal major for students interested in medicine or neuroscience research, particularly neurology and psychiatry.
