Declaring a Major

Declaring a major in Neuroscience

To declare the major, you must:

  • Meet with the Director of Undergraduate Studies
  • Fill out a form to declare your major in Neuroscience
  • Deliver a signed copy of the form to the Weinberg Office of Undergraduate Studies and Advising, 1922 Sheridan Road

You may declare a major in Neuroscience at any point up until your Petition to Graduate is filed, but it is preferable to declare by Winter quarter of your sophomore year. If you are dropping another major, this can be done using the same form and at the same time that you declare Neuroscience as your major.

NOTE: Students interested in majoring in Neuroscience should make an advising appointment as soon as possible with the Director of Undergraduate Studies, Dr. Valerie Kilman. Appointments may be made by emailing neuroscience@u.northwestern.edu.
