An Interdisciplinary Undergraduate Major/Minor in Neuroscience
A truly interdisciplinary environment for discovery and learning is essential for understanding the organization and function of nerve cells and nervous systems, as well as the organismal behaviors they produce, including human cognition. At Duke University, the experience in neuroscience for undergraduates is nurtured in just such a collaborative environment, where the perspectives of multiple disciplines are brought together to explore the brain sciences and their impact on real-world problems.
Explore our program and discover why the study of neuroscience at Duke University is one of the most exciting and satisfying adventures that an education in the liberal arts and sciences can offer!

Hometown: Valdosta, GA
Research: : During my freshman year, I had the pleasure of working with Ruth Day on research which incorporated Cognitive Neuroscience and work done with the American Dance Festival.
Thoughts: In my opinion, the human brain is one of the most fascinating things in the universe, especially considering how little we known about it. Given that my two greatest passions include Performing Arts and Neuroscience, my general goal is to discover a common denominator between the two and to find an innovative way to explore both fields together.
