The psychobiology major is an interdisciplinary program of study in the behavioral and biological sciences. It is designed for those students who are interested in such fields as animal behavior, behavior genetics, cognitive neuroscience, physiological psychology, psychopharmacogy, neurobiology and developmental psychobiology. A basic core of required courses will expose the student to the fundamental knowledge and methodological skills peculiar to this broad area of study. Beyond these general requirements, the student may select a course of study which emphasizes either a behavioral or physiological concentration. Recent graduates have taken many paths, including graduate school programs in physical therapy, neurobiology, and clinical psychology; and careers as doctors, counselors, researchers, and teachers.
