双修神经科学和另一个专业, 4门课程(含核心课程), 核心选修课, and cognate elective) can be double-counted in both majors.

额外的机会

Independent Studies: 神经科学 students are encouraged to perform independent research in one of the many active labs on campus. 此外, opportunities exist to perform research or get clinical experience at the University of Connecticut Health Center, 哈特福德医院, the Institute of Living and Connecticut Children’s Medical Center. A special research program is available through the Ayers 神经科学 Institute. See the program director to learn how to apply for these opportunities.

Study away: 神经科学 students who wish to study away should meet with their adviser and the program director in advance of the semester they intend to go away. Professor Seraphin is currently the study-away adviser for the 神经科学 Program and can advise students regarding specific study-away options. There are many study-away locations that allow for course work in neuroscience as well as internship experiences. Students who wish to take a course for major credit while away must have this approved by the program director before going away.

Courses at other institutions: Students who wish to earn major credit for course work at other institutions should 提交 to the director the name of the institution and the number, title, 以及课程目录说明. This information must be 提交ted in writing before the work is initiated and formal permission must be granted before the courses can be credited toward the major at Trinity, following the usual procedures established by the Office of Study Away.

荣誉: In order to be considered for honors in the major, students must have an overall GPA of 3.7 in the 200-level and above courses that are being counted towards the major requirements, and students must demonstrate superior quality in their research or community service, 由项目教员决定.

此外,

学生必须完成以下其中一项:
Two semester thesis in neuroscience (NESC 498 and NESC 499) with a grade of A or better.
两个学期(2.神经科学研究助理(NESC 425), 都是由同一个研究导师完成的. 此外, both semesters must be 申报专业后完成, and one of the two semesters must be completed in the senior year with a grade of A or better.
Summer research assistant in neuroscience supervised by a member of the 神经科学 Coordinating Committee or approved in advance by the Director, 申报专业后完成, 下一学期(1.0信用) of research assistant in neuroscience (NESC 425) completed during the senior year with the same faculty research supervisor. The summer research must earn distinction and the credit of NESC 425 must earn a grade of A or better.
Equivalent hours (300 hours) committed to community engagement in neuroscience approved by the Director. Students must complete and turn in the Documentation of Community Engagement Hours form signed by the community mentor and by the Director of the program. This must be completed and turned in to the Director by the last day of classes of the semester the student will be graduating. 这种课外经历必须获得重视.
Students must give either an oral presentation during the annual spring neuroscience presentations or a poster presentation at the annual Research Symposium in the senior year.
