Is the senior requirement different in the Neuroscience Track?

The senior requirement for the neuroscience track is the same as the senior requirement for the standard major except that your 400-level courses should have neuroscience content. As with the standard major, students pursuing the B.S. degree in the track must carry out an empirical project as part of a directed research course (PSYC 498 or 499), but students in the Neuroscience Track must be supervised by a faculty member within the neuroscience area of the Psychology department (click here for a list). Students who wish to work with an affiliated faculty member studying neuroscience outside the department must obtain permission from the neuroscience track adviser.
