We are happy that you are visiting our new MBB website, especially as we celebrate our 20th anniversary! The Mind/Brain/Behavior Interfaculty Initiative (MBB) was introduced in 1993 to encourage an interdisciplinary community of faculty from across the University to engage in research and other academic activities aimed at elucidating the structure, function, evolution, development, aging, and pathology of the brain in the context of human behavior, genetics, and society. Since then, our initiative has expanded to include all members of the Harvard community who have a connection to the study of the mind, the brain, or behavior. Learn more

MBB Track Program and Secondary Field

To recognize the special character of interdisciplinary study integrated with a home discipline, the undergraduate programs in MBB will award students in participating tracks Certificates in Mind Brain Behavior in addition to their A.B. degrees.

Students outside these concentrations, or students in these concentrations who do not wish to pursue these integrated honors tracks, may pursue a secondary field in Mind Brain Behavior. Upon completing course requirements for this program, the MBB secondary field will be noted on student transcripts.
