Neuroscience Program Overview

At the intersection of psychology and science, Neuroscience links observations about psychological processes such as cognition, learning, and emotion with the underlying biological processes of the central nervous system.

The study of Neuroscience speaks to Cabrini’s mission of social justice. Understanding issues such as how quickly or slowly the brain’s decision-making regions develop, emotion and reward pathways connected to addiction, and brain processes tied to memory. All have profound impacts on social justice issues and a role in informing public policy.

Read more about the launch of Cabrini's Neuroscience Minor, which is available to all students, especially Science and Psychology majors.

Employment Outlook

The study of undergraduate Neuroscience leads to career paths in Neuroscience research and health fields related to both Psychology and Science, medicine, and neuropsychology.
