Tracks

Mind Brain Behavior tracks have been designed for students who wish to integrate their interests in mind/brain/behavior with their concentration, and who wish to pursue research as part of their learning experience. Students who complete the requirements common to all MBB tracks as noted below, as well as the requirements of their concentration, will be awarded a Certificate in Mind Brain Behavior in addition to their A.B. degree.

Senior Thesis Requirement

Students must write a senior thesis on a topic in mind brain behavior that has been approved by their concentration.

Students must complete the following three courses, which lay a foundation and address issues and topics relevant to mind/brain/behavior:

Interdisciplinary Requirement

Students must participate in two, non-credit, MBB-planned events that emphasize interactions among students across tracks.
