Mission and Goals


Neuroscience is becoming an ever-more popular field of study, bridging biology and psychology. Students continuing to graduate school, occupational therapy school, and medical school are more likely to be asked to take classes with a Neuroscience focus prior to applying. Neuroscience is an up-and-coming field that hopes to extend our understanding of human behavior, disease, and mental health. In this way, neuroscience expands on our student’s intellect, imagination, and social awareness. Not only does neuroscience provide support for students continuing to professional and pre-professional programs but it also encourages students to question and think about how biology can influence human thought and behavior. Neuroscience holds promise as the key to understanding drug therapy, mental illness, and basic human function.
