Students are encouraged to declare the major when they are in their sophomore year, before selecting their courses for the Fall semester of their Junior year. All students wishing to declare the Neuroscience major must have successfully completed, or be currently enrolled in, NRSC 1110/BBB 109: Introduction to Brain and Behavior.
Students wishing to declare the major should complete the following steps in order:
1. Students must download and complete the Major Declaration Worksheet and save the file as a PDF with the name "Neuroscience [LastName]".
2. Make an appointment with a Neuroscience advisor during advising hours to discuss their plan to complete the requirements for the major. Students should email the worksheet to the Neuroscience advisor in advance of their appointment.
3. After meeting with an advisor, students must make an official request to declare the major on the College website at https://srfs.upenn.edu/registrar/forms.
