Coe College has a strong tradition of student/faculty research collaboration. As a neuroscience major you will have the opportunity to participate in original research in a number of exciting areas directly related to neuroscience ranging from the molecular to the behavioral level with faculty from the biology, chemistry or psychology departments. You will have the opportunity for hands-on laboratory experiences that will build upon what you have learned in your coursework. You also will have opportunities to present your research — not only to your fellow Coe students, but also at regional and national scientific conferences. These experiences help develop skills particularly valuable for graduate study and for any career you might choose.
