Are you considering going to medical school or working in the medical sciences? Consider UToledo’s new B.S. in Neuroscience, offered jointly through UToledo’s College of Natural Sciences and Mathematics and College of Medicine and Life Sciences.
Neuroscience is a great degree program if you want to go to medical school or are just curious how the brain works and plays an important part in how we function every day.
Neuroscientists study the structure and function of the human brain and nervous system. They conduct research, work in labs and provide care to patients. Neuroscientists help develop new medications and therapies for neurological disorders.
Understanding biology and the functions of the brain can help researchers and professionals answer medical questions — like how the brain perceives pain or even the cause of disorders like Alzheimer’s disease.
Graduates of neuroscience bachelor’s degree programs often go on to medical or graduate school.
A neuroscience degree also prepares you for a professional career in medical and scientific fields such as:
UToledo’s neuroscience program provides students with a solid foundation in chemistry and biology. It offers a comprehensive understanding of how the brain functions, from basic neural signaling to cognitive neuroscience.
