*These courses are not offered every year, seats are limited, and enrollment is by permission of the professor. Approval of the neuroscience minor does not guarantee the opportunity to enroll. Neuroscience students must consider alternatives within this category.
 
Notes
  • Students must include courses from at least three departments in the minor.
  • Students may overlap no more than two courses with major requirements.
