Integrative Neuroscience Program

An interdisciplinary science

Neuroscience — the study of the nervous system – provides incredible opportunities to work across disciplines as it focuses on the brain and how it works. From the biology to the psychology of behavior, there is much to study.

Neuroscientists routinely draw on the fields of psychology, biology, chemistry, mathematics, physics and computer science in their work, and that's one reason integrative neuroscience is such an interesting and challenging field of study.

The Integrative Neuroscience Major

At Binghamton University, students who major in integrative neuroscience (formerly known as psychobiology), take a variety of courses across a number of departments. Most of the core courses are taken in the departments of psychology and biological sciences. Distribution requirements are derived from the mathematics, chemistry and physics departments; and electives can come from departments such as anthropology, philosophy and history.

Many students who receive a bachelor of science degree in integrative neuroscience go on to graduate or professional school. Majoring in integrative neuroscience provides a good background for master's or PhD programs in a variety of disciplines such as neuroscience, anatomy, physiology and pharmacology, among others. Additionally, many students find that Binghamton’s integrative neuroscience program provides excellent preparation for medical or dental school.
