Welcome to the Neurobiology Major at the University of Wisconsin-Madison!

The Neurobiology Major within The Department of Integrative Biology in the College of Letters and Sciences is designed to give students a solid foundation in basic biology, chemistry, physics, and mathematics before going on to study neuroscience at the molecular, cellular, and systems levels. The goal of our interdisciplinary major is to prepare students to move on into the job market or to continue on and obtain a professional degree. UW-Madison is one of the leading research universities in the world 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 also through undergraduate research opportunities. The Neurobiology Major Program Committee is committed to increasing opportunities for students in neuroscience and helping students accomplish their academic goals at UW-Madison.
