neuroscience minor bannerThe Neuroscience Minor: Wake Forest offers a minor in Neuroscience. Neuroscience is a rapidly growing interdisciplinary field that encompasses the study of the nervous system and its role in regulating behavior. Neuroscientists examine subjects ranging from the molecular pharmacology of brain function to the mind-body problem.  Information about the minor, including requirements can be found at

http://neuroscience.wfu.edu or by contacting Dr. Wayne Silver in the Department of Biology at silver@wfu.edu


environment_minorInterdisciplinary Minor in Environmental Science:  The Wake Forest Environmental program offers an Environmental Science minor or an Environmental Studies minor.  The Environmental program provides an interdisciplinary approach to the study of human-environmental interaction.  The Environmental Science or the Environmental Studies minor, coupled with a liberal arts major, is designed to prepare students for careers in the environmental sciences, law, public health, public policy, and public administration, and to develop attitudes and values consistent with a sustainable environmental future.

Please consult a current copy (or online version) of the Wake Forest bulletin for course requirements.  The requirements of a Biology major and Environmental Sciences minor overlap somewhat.  The Environmental Program currently has some funding to support student research projects locally and in Latin America, and to participate in a joint environmental program with the University of Oxford.  For more information contact Dr. Robert Browne (at brownera@wfu.edu).
