students working in neuroscience labNorthern is one of only a few public teaching universities in the country to offer a bachelor’s degree in neuroscience. At NMU, not only will you be part of a top-notch academic program, but you’ll also get experience working in a laboratory setting as you assist ongoing research conducted by our own faculty – faculty like Professor Joshua Carlson, who is conducting research on cognitive functioning and emotional processing in disorders like depression and anxiety.

The neuroscience major is designed for students who wish to pursue a career or graduate studies in the field of neuroscience. Neuroscience is the scientific study of the nervous system and emerges from a fusion of multiple fields, including biology and psychology. This major provides a foundation for pursuing graduate studies in neuroscience with a potential goal of conducting neuroscience research in academia or industry.  

This program is often paired with an integrative science minor, a pre-professional science minor or a math, physics or chemistry minor.
