B.S. in Neuroscience

The Molecular, Cellular and Integrative Neuroscience Special Academic Unit offers an interdisciplinary Neuroscience program from Colorado State University with faculty in five different colleges and ten departments.

Quick Facts

Full-time Duration: 4 years
Starting in: January, August
Tuition Fee: $32,734 per year
Location: Fort Collins, CO, United States

Two different concentrations are offered as programs of study: Behavioral and Cognitive Neuroscience and Cell and Molecular Neuroscience.

Both concentrations have a strong foundation in mathematics, physics, chemistry and biological sciences that utilize a common core for the first two years, differing in only a single course for each concentration, thus making it easy to switch between concentrations if a student’s interest changes during the first two years.

Both concentrations require completion of an undergraduate thesis, providing significant opportunities for experiential learning in research laboratories in which they work closely with faculty, and which sometimes lead to authorship of original publications. Electives allow students in one concentration to acquire breadth and depth in the other area, if desired.

Potential Occupations

Possible career opportunities for students with a B.S. in Neuroscience from Colorado State University include, but are not limited to: research technician, medical or clinical lab technologist, production/quality assurance lab technician, pharmaceutical research worker or salesperson, human resource specialist, neurotoxicology technician, teacher, writer, and research analyst.

Many Neuroscience majors go to professional schools in medicine, veterinary medicine, or health sciences, or into graduate programs encompassing virtually all areas of biomedical sciences and psychology.



“My experience at CSU, and particularly in the Department of Fish, Wildlife, and Conservation Biology has been invaluable! The program was both challenging and supportive.”
