Undergraduate Certificate in Neuroscience
The Neuroscience Certificate encourages undergraduate students
at the University of Colorado Boulder to take courses in basic
science while providing a means to specialize in neurosciences.
Since this area of the biological sciences is cross-disciplinary,
interdepartmental course selection is possible and encouraged. Applicants must satisfy
the requirements of: 1) the parent department of their major, 2) their college's
core curriculum, and 3) the Neuroscience Certificate. They then
receive an undergraduate degree in their parent department with
certification in neuroscience. Award of the Certificate appears
on your CU transcript.
