Degree Programs

The Neuroscience Program offers an interdisciplinary minor, weaving together courses in biology, chemistry, engineering, mathematics, nursing, philosophy and psychology.

Neuroscience Minor

The neuroscience minor program at Hope College is founded on one of its greatest strengths: its research program. Our program promotes the process of discovery and inquiry-based learning. The minor consists of a total of 23 credit hours, combining three core neuroscience courses with flagged courses from multiple disciplines. We strongly encourage you to make this minor your own.

“I think that I just decided to take on the neuroscience minor on a whim, but I am glad that I did. I appreciate the interdisciplinary aspect and that it is a minor that can be useful to people with lots of different academic backgrounds. The professors were interesting and brought a lot of knowledge to the program.”

Neuroscience Composite Major

If you’re interested in pursuing neuroscience as a major, please contact Dr. Leah Chase, the program director. Typically, we encourage students to major in psychology, biology, chemistry or another major and add neuroscience as a minor. However, if your academic and career interests span the social, natural and applied sciences — like psychology and biology — a composite major may be an option.
