Neuroscience

Minor

The Fundamentals of the Mind at Work

Social problems tied to recent brain research are revealing the importance of knowledge of Neuroscience, which is the scientific study of the nervous system. At Taylor University, we want to equip students to be part of the solution, teaching the biological side of psychology from a biblically-based perspective. In the Neuroscience minor, you’ll gain foundational knowledge in this fast-growing area of psychology, understanding how the brain works and how the person and behavior are impacted.
