Neuroscience under- or postgrad?

<p>I was wondering if it would be better to pursue neuroscience as an undergraduate major, or to take it postgrad, after double-majoring in biology and psychology. </p>

<p>Any input will be greatly appreciated.</p>

<p>I'd do the broader undergrad major of biology and psychology. This is because it will give you a broader employment base, in case your plans change and you don't want to, or can't, go on for a PhD.</p>

<p>Also, the more general degree will expose you to other areas that you may find of academic interest.</p>

<p>Your undergraduate major doesn't matter as much as the courses you take in college. You could complete a neuroscience major as an undergraduate, but it would probably be good for your broader education to also take several courses in biology, if you're interested in molecular/cellular neuroscience, or engineering, if you're interested in AI, or psychology, if you're interested in cognitive science.</p>

<p>I majored in neuroscience as an undergraduate and am now in a neuroscience PhD program. I feel that my undergraduate background in neuroscience is a great asset to my graduate work -- I had a great knowledge base when I started the program that other students didn't have -- but I am glad that I also completed a major in biology.</p>

<p>Thanks for the advice. </p>

<p>I did a little more research, and found that some colleges offer Biopsychology as a major. Would a double major in this and neuroscience be advisable?</p>
