Welcome to the Neurobiology Major at the University of Wisconsin-Madison!
The Undergraduate Neurobiology Major is housed in the Department of Integrative Biology. Neurobiology is an interdisciplinary major with the goal of preparing students for professional degrees or the job market. This major is designed for students interested in understanding how the brain functions to control behavior and physiology. This field of study has expanded rapidly in recent decades due to advances in a variety of STEAM fields. UW-Madison is a leading research university with more than 90 faculty engaged in neuroscience research. Undergraduate students in our major will have access to these faculty members in formal classroom environments and through undergraduate research opportunities. The neurobiology major is a rapidly growing major that provides students with a strong background in basic science and mathematics, plus upper level study in cutting-edge neuroscience topics.
