Career Paths

There are great variety of careers that you can pursue with a B.A. in Neuroscience. Many students begin working directly after receiving their B.A.s, for instance in careers such as being a research technician in a lab, working in industry (e.g. pharmaceuticals), becoming a STEM teacher in a K-12 setting, science communication and journalism, and science advocacy and policy. Some students may be interested in pursuing further study in Neuroscience in either an M.A. or a Ph.D. program, which can, in addition to the above routes, open doors to further research lab positions and positions as a faculty member at a college or university, as well as careers in government health and regulatory agencies (e.g. NIH, FDA, CDC), and law (e.g. patent law). Some students may go on an pursue a medical degree or a degree in public health as well.
