There is a growing need to train students in neuroscience at the undergraduate level. Such training prepares students to start professional careers at the bachelor’s level in the rapidly growing commercial biotechnology and pharmaceutical sectors. In addition, a bachelor’s degree in neuroscience provides the background for future graduate study and/or the study of medicine. University of Illinois Chicago has the longest running undergraduate neuroscience program in Illinois.

Once the undergraduate has fulfilled the basic course requirements, the program provides the student with an opportunity to concentrate on electives and independent research in one of four areas: Biological Sciences, Psychology, Chemistry or Philosophy. Thus each student graduates with a major in neuroscience but that major will have a distinctive flavor.
