The neuroscience minor provides students with the opportunity to understand the structure and function of the nervous system and the brain from a multidisciplinary perspective, including biological, chemical, psychological, physical, computational, legal, social, or clinical perspectives.
Students must complete 22 hours for the minor including:
Six of the elective hours must be at the 300-400 level and must be outside the student’s major department. Appropriate courses may be substituted with the approval of the director of the Neuroscience minor. Prerequisites for some of these courses may increase the total number of hours. Any NEUR course cross-listed with a course in the student’s major department cannot be used to fulfill these 6 elective hours.
University-wide minimum requirements for a minor: 1) one-half of the hours required for a minor must be completed in residence at UNC Asheville, to include at least 6 hours at the 300-400 level; 2) students must have a cumulative grade-point-average of at least 2.0 on minor courses taken at UNC Asheville.
