BACHELOR OF SCIENCE IN COGNITIVE AND BEHAVIORAL NEUROSCIENCE
The undergraduate major in cognitive and behavioral neuroscience provides an intensive course of study focused on brain-behavior relationships, ranging from genetic to whole brain contributions to mental processes. This Bachelor of Science program prepares highly motivated undergraduates for graduate study, and, eventually, professional careers in the neurosciences or related fields, such as medicine.
Because the CBN program is a four-year major, freshman enter Villanova as declared CBN majors. Therefore, prospective students interested in the CBN program should select this program when applying to the university. The number of majors is capped at 24 students in each year’s class. Current Villanova students who wish to become CBN majors can apply via the change major form. These applications will be considered if and when there are openings in the major. Acceptance into the major will be based on merit.
