Washington State University Vancouver will offer a new degree starting this fall.
The new program — neuroscience — focuses on the connection between the brain and behavior, and provides an additional degree geared toward the health care industry.
Neuroscience is an interdisciplinary field that will require students to take classes in biology, psychology and neuroscience. Students will be expected to participate in research or outreach.
Graduates with a bachelor's degree in neuroscience can work in research laboratories as technicians, in pharmaceutical or health-product companies as marketing or sales representatives, and in federal, state and local public health programs as health analysts or managers.
A neuroscience degree also provides preparation for medical school and advanced degrees in other health-related fields such as veterinary medicine and pharmacy.
