Secondary Field Electives

Your secondary field requirements include two MBB elective courses, selected from the list below. The list includes relevant courses from fields that comprise the core disciplines in the undergraduate student of mind/brain/behavior. This list, which varies each year, has been updated for 2019-2020. Courses on elective lists from previous years will count toward the secondary field; check with Shawn Harriman if you have any questions about previous courses. If you take more than one course from the MBB interdisciplinary seminar list, you may count the additional one(s) toward this MBB elective requirement.
