Visit the Integrative Neuroscience Program
Gain a unique multidisciplinary perspective on the field of neuroscience.
Neuroscience—the study of the nervous system—is one of the most exciting, rapidly advancing, and integrative fields in science today. Technological advances of the last 20 years have led to a dramatic rise in neuroscience research in biology, chemistry, psychology, computer science, physics—even economics. As an integrative neuroscience major at Fordham, you’ll study the intersection of these disciplines.
Our primary aim is to make you a highly competitive candidate for postgraduate study in neuroscience through our uniquely integrative program. You’ll choose from three tracks focusing on a specific aspect of neuroscience—cell and molecular, cognitive, or systems and computational—but you’ll get exposure to all of them. We want you to have multiple perspectives on this exhilarating field of study.
We also prepare you by requiring you to engage in Neuroscience research by completing an independent project during your time here. Get ready to be fascinated.
Your education will extend far beyond rigorous study of the brain and its functions. You’ll also study philosophy, theology, economics, mathematics, ethics, and the performing arts through Fordham’s common core curriculum, the centerpiece of our liberal arts education.
We want you to excel in your field—and as a human being.
