About the Neuroscience Program
The Weber State Neuroscience Program offers undergraduate coursework for students to complete a minor in neuroscience, which focuses on the understanding of nervous system function.
Coursework covers cellular, molecular, clinical, cognitive and behavioral neuroscience. Along with taking classes about the nervous system, neuroscience minors are also provided with mentorship, community engagement and research opportunities throughout the program.
Students graduating with this minor leave with a deeper understanding of neuroscience function and are equipped for postgraduate programs and careers in research, medicine and clinical work related to nervous system function and dysfunction.
The Neuroscience Program at Weber State University receives strong support from three separate colleges:
- The Dr. Ezekiel R. Dumke College of Health Professions; Dean Yasmen Simonian
- The College of Science; Dean Andrea Easter-Pilcher
- The College of Social & Behavioral Sciences; Dean Julie Rich.
The faculty that participate in the WSU Neuroscience Program also conduct research and organize public outreach efforts.
This minor requires 19 credit hours, although you may need more credit hours to complete the required prerequisite courses. Coursework covers cellular, molecular, clinical, cognitive and behavioral neuroscience. Students must complete at least one science lab course (in any subject).
Before You Declare
We recommend you take Introduction to Neuroscience (NEUR 2950) before declaring this minor.
(Course Number was changed from NEUR 2050 for fall 2022)
If you haven't completed previous coursework related to the nervous system, you are required to take Biological Psychology (PSY 2730) before taking NEUR 2950, which also counts towards the neuroscience minor.
Students who have taken other science courses may be able to declare the minor with approval from the program director.

NEUR 4800 (Projects & Research) and NEUR 4830 (Directed Reading) require instructor and program director approval and theIndividualized Instruction Contract.
NEUR 3998 (EEG In Epilepsy) and NEUR 3999 (EEG in Pediatric Patients) require enrollment in the END Program (see below)
Congrats on your graduation! Before you graduate:
- Complete our graduation survey.
- Schedule an appointment with Dr. O’Hare for any changes that need to be made to your Cattracks.
Weber State and the University of Utah partner to offer the Bachelor of Interdisciplinary Studies in Electroneurodiagnostics (END) through the University of Utah’s Department of Neurology.
Students must qualify for entry into the END program. Once they do so, they receive WSU college practicum credit for their END courses and complete a Bachelor of Interdisciplinary Studies (BIS) degree through Weber State shortly after they complete the END certification requirements.
Details about the program and course requirements can be found in the WSU catalog.
Contact Dr. Hutchins for more information about the END Program at firstname.lastname@example.org.
