Psychology (Neuroscience Concentration)
What does your class list look like as a neuroscience major? You might study what makes people tick in your "Theories of Personality" class. Grapple with high-tech ethics in an "Artificial Intelligence" class. Do gene research in the lab for your "Genetics and Development" class.
Calvin is one of the few Christian colleges or universities to offer a neuroscience program. Here, you’ll investigate the brain from all angles. You’ll focus on the psychology of cognition, behavior, and brain function. And, you’ll take courses in philosophy, biology, chemistry, physics, and computer science to expand your expertise.
Far from being narrow, studying neuroscience here is a broadening and enriching experience. You’ll ask questions not only about the mind and brain but about what makes us human from a Christian perspective.
