Newly Created Neuroscience Minor Approved to Begin Autumn Semester 2021


A minor in Neuroscience will now be available to UM students this fall, following its recent approval by the Montana Board of Regents.  The minor was created to provide an innovative pathway for non-majors to develop a valuable and applicable understanding of the brain and cognition.  It will prepare students for the rapidly evolving opportunities arising in various sectors, including: medicine, mental health, drug discovery, rehabilitation sciences, education, artificial intelligence, business, entrepreneurism, ethics and the law. Importantly, the Neuroscience minor allows students to build upon the expertise of their primary major, with a complementary understanding of neuroscience that is becoming increasingly valuable and sought after in a multitude of career paths.

Owing to the overlap of course requirements, the Neuroscience minor is especially efficient and attractive for a variety majors including, but not limited to, Psychology and Human Biology.
